Overview

"A ship for pirates on a budget - no interior comforts, but it sports a highly-tuned engine and astounding maneuverability. In combat with a Dart, fly an erratic course and try to wear down its armor."

The origins of Dart are somewhat unclear, but a persistent rumour states that it was originally designed to become GalNavy's new scout / one-man fighter and that after losing the bid to Sunracer, the designer succumbed to Scarlet Brotherhood. No matter how it happened, the truth is that Darts are manufactured by several outworld workshops, and take part in many pirate raids aroundf the Eight.

Known variants

Although no Dart is exactly the same, all specimens encountered conform to the same basic design. Due to the questionable nature of their origins, all Darts found in and out of the spacelanes are bound to be pirates.

Lack of spare parts and the general harshness of operating conditions cause many Darts to have inferior stats than the base design calls for.

Anyone willing to fly one has to seek anarchic systems for shipyards that buy and sell ships, no questions asked.
