The Drake Corsair is a multi-crew explorer that gives up defenses for a focus on versatility and defensive weaponry. With asymmetric, convertible wings and a large cargo hold, the Corsair adapts gracefully to unfamiliar atmosphere, combat situations, and hot landing zones. Up to four crew can be accommodated in the Corsair's functional quarters, and a full complement of scanning suites along with a pair of quantum fuel tanks provide the means and method of exploring distant, dangerous stars.[1]

  • On-Board Facilities: Top-flight crew quarters and a full complement of state-of-the-art scanning suites combine to provide a powerful exploration platform
  • Rear Ramp/Cargo/Vehicle Storage: With enough room for either a ground exploration vehicle or a bounty of cargo, the Corsair's hold is vast and versatile

Development

The Corsair was first introduced in 2017-12-01 in the vote "YOU Pick the Next Drake Ship". It came last in the vote to be the next Drake ship by backers with 19% of 37696 voters.[3]

During the 2950 Drake Defensecon, the ship was on display at the Riker Memorial Spaceport in Area18. It was represented by a downscaled holographic display of the model.[4]
