The Asp Mark II Special was an early project of the Galactic Navy. However, the sheer size and production costs of this first version lead to an early cancellation with only a few hundred ships ever on the spacelanes. Nowadays, the remaining crafts are mainly in the hands of pirates. Years later the blueprints were retrieved from the archives leading to the development of the Asp-X.

After the Asp was taken over by Zorgon Petterson Group the name was used for another project, a member of the Neo-Asp family. The lead designer Simon B (already famous at this time) went exactly the opposite way, by using all micro-technology available the ship became smaller and looked more aggressive while keeping all specifications of a standard Asp Mark II. Since high-tech doesn't come cheap and some first-class cabin furnishing was included, the basic price went up for 50,000 Cr.

Never particular popular with the clients, the design lead to the development of an update of the Navy Asp Mark II and a reinstatement at the Galactic Navy.
