Morrigan Class Wild Scout

design by Derek Stanley



With the announcement late this afternoon of Nightrim Navel Command's acceptance of the Darius Engineering Scout / Courier modification, stock prices in the once little known firm rose dramatically sending investors scrambling to acquire more shares. The terms of the contract have yet to be announced; however, inside sources say that the deal is for the modification of five Scout / Couriers to the Artemis specifications by the end of the year, with a further ten to follow the following year.

Although the final performance statistics of the Morrigan are still classified inside sources have managed to provide us with the following information.

The Morrigan is used by the Nightrim Confederation, a small pocket empire located in Reavers Deep. The ship was designed using Fire, Fusion & Steel

The Confederation of Nightrim has, due to it's general unsuitablity for missions into the Wilds, decertified the S-Class Scout for anything other than milk runs. Hence the Artemis, it was designed as a small, fast, long legged scrapper capable of holding it's own with larger vessels in the Wilds. It was designed as an armed exploration vessel for use by CNERS (Sinners). With the abundance of S-Classes the Confederation decided that it might be cheaper and faster to recondition relic vessels and return them to forward duty than it would be to construct vessels from scratch. The result of this program is the Morrigan. The problem with the Morrigan is that the contractor building it is competing with the contractor of the Hecate for the S-Class's parts.

1) The Morrigan is also armed with a, pop down, TL13 Plasma Cannon and coaxial VRF Gauss. The Plasma guns statistics are identical to those on the Phyrus with one exeption, it has 800 rounds of ammunition. The Both the Plasma Gun and the VFR Gauss are controlled by the MFD operator and has advanced stabilization.
