The Mussurana snake is a snake that eats other snakes. Perhaps the Mussurana Void-Yacht can be called a snake ship that eats other snake ships. Agile, reasonably quick and easy to equip well as a trade ship that can look after itself, this new offering from the Zorgon Petterson Group goes on to continue the reputation that ZPG gained after it designed the now legendary Fer de Lance.

Notable features

Weighing in at a colossal 875,000₢ for the standard model, this is a ship made for the rich, with an interior to match. The ship has luxurious appointments, without appearing decadent or in bad taste. Zorgon Petterson Group's interior designers have created luxury living quarters with the same clean and understated industrial design that wealthy and discerning commanders have come to expect. This is the ship that Steve Jobs would fly were he to visit Lave and obtain his pilots license.

The comfortable living arrangements does not mean the ship is comfortable for those who make it their target. Most Mussurana commanders spare no expense on defences and weaponry, so you can expect to find any Mussurana you encounter to equipped with military lasers and witch fuel injectors. Well-heeled bounty hunters with a sense of class are often seen in the Mussurana, having traded up from their Fer de Lance.


Only a week after the Mussurana went on sale at Zorgon Petterson Group dealerships, a Mussurana was used to assassinate the charismatic leader of the United Metalworkers Union in Reorte. The ship evaded police Viper patrol craft, and slipped into hyperspace. The perpetrator still has not been caught.
