Game manual

One of the larger trading vessels manufactured in Inera Orbit Space by Whatt and Pritney ShipConstruct. Cabin accommodation is cramped and spartan in contrast to facilities for cargo and 'alien environment' transport. Though slow and ponderous, the craft has powerful CC-Voltaire shields and Volt-Variscan Pulse lasers, earning it the nicknane of the 'space porcupine'. Not commonly attacked by pirate ships, but a popular craft for freebooters, usually used as a way-station and storage hulk.


Another classic design that has survived the centuries. The first vessel was constructed in 2700 by Whatt and Pritney Ship Constructions. With the demise of the company and after various mergers and takeovers the ship design is now owned by Faulcon deLacy. The ship remains the slow and sturdy craft it was originally famous for and some smaller navies still use this class as patrol cruisers (although tiny compared to the Imperial Interdictors and Federal Battle cruisers).

The Python is a heavily armed and well-protected craft, being quite manoeuvrable (considering its hulking size) and potentially useful in a variety of roles.

It is considered by some to be the most effective balance between firepower, manouvrebility, and protection currently available. In addition to being capable of holding its own against the larger Anaconda in a toe-to-toe frontal battle through its substantial protection and firepower, the Python is generally agile enough to comfortably deal with smaller fighter classes without having to rely on turret mounts.

The Python can also serve as a heavily armed freighter in that it can carry 284 T of cargo with a class 3 shield module fitted, or 292 T with no shield fitted, both of which is more cargo than the Type-7 Transporter can carry without shields fitted. Additionally, besides being able to carry more cargo while retaining shields, the Python can dock at Outposts since it utilizes medium sized landing pads. However, the downside to trading with a Python is its short jump range when fully loaded.
