The Wyvern was an attempt to combine a larger trading ship with a faster multiple-role craft, and it was an attempt that nearly worked. What the designers ended up with was a craft that had almost enough cargo room to be a trading ship, and almost enough speed and kick to be a combat craft. It may have fallen between two stools in many people’s eyes, but to others it acts as a great all-rounder.

Notable Features




Absolutely no contender for the Asp Explorer. The Wyvern packs a few more tons, but is much, much slower. Avoid.
