The Drake Corsair is a multi-crew explorer that gives up defenses for a focus on versatility and firepower. It has asymmetric convertible wings, and a large cargo hold. 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]
