Manufactured by Zorgon Petterson Group, in service 3112. From the EliteA version of Classic Elite.

Monitor Industries bought the Monitor Trademark in 3114 after Zorgon Petterson Group (ZPG) was not interested in selling the ship anymore. Sources within the ZPG said this was due to a bad marketing strategy. Problem with the Monitor was its speed. Only a creeping 0.18 LM. Monitor industries lowered some prices and also brought down the production costs resulting in a more competitive position within the market. This was possible because of redesign of the bridge and living quarters. The original wood finished seats and beds where replaced with polymers and metal. Basically all the luxury was taken out of the ship. Its strong selling points today are the large cargo space, the 6 energy banks and the 5 pylons. A commander can own a good trader which is also a good weapon platform too.

3115 Ooship central TV review

Ooship central TV did a Holobroadcast about the Monitor in Early 3115. In a test it came out better than a Python in some aspects. The presenter praised the ships versatility in combination with pylon based equipment. It's weak points remained it's speed. Even with injectors you could just outrun a missile. The ship was given 3 out of 5 stars. Which is a decent score.
