STF-104 Starknife. Fighter/Assault, large enough to mount jump drive, often named as an independent star vessel. This one, for example, was named "Geosword."
Carries a crew of 2 (Gunner/Commander, Nav/Pilot). Onboard magnetic fusion reactors (x2) power the main thrust assemblies, electrokinetic shielding, and main plasma pulse accelerator cannons (PPEC). Jump drive is a modified Alcubierre device. The twin fins act as the antigrav radiators, with the PPEC coils acting as grav accelerators for FTL jumps. Thrust systems allow for full vectoring at sublight, allowing for hovering, lateral drifts, level flight, and multiple orientations, even in gravity or atmosphere.
While capable of carrying secondary ordinance including missiles, the Geosword was launched without such loadouts during the initial engagement of "Redeye" mechanized forces.
"Making a rapid descent." "Whoa. That'll clear your sinuses."
