This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

This stealthy escort is tremendously agile and relatively durable for a ship with its maneuvering capabilities. It features a Railgun Destabilizer Console, which allows it to deliver a withering barrage of explosive blasts at nearby foes.
