Probably the finest dedicated fighter in the known universe, the Imperial Courier is THE ship to be seen in! The ship was originally designed for the Imperial Navy, and when properly armed is a devastating combat machine. The large internal capacity allows a decent number of shield generators and a powerful laser to be added and still leave enough space for trading or fuel for long trips. There are a number of these ships in the hands of pirates, and an encounter with a Courier armed with a 20MW beam laser can be a very frightening experience.

As befits its military origins, the Courier is adept at all of the missions you are likely to get should you choose the military life. There were a number of Couriers which could operate with just the commander, eliminating the need for a crew, but these are not available to the general public. If at all possible, you should try to obtain an ex-military Courier (identifiable by red and blue stripes on the front part of the engines) as some of the ships for sale have been sold by pirates attempting to evade the police.

Rating: *****
