The Drake Herald is a small, armored ship designed to safely get information from Point A to Point B. Featuring a powerful central engine (for high-speed transit and generating the power needed for effective data encryption/containment), advanced encryption software and an armored computer core, the Herald is unique among personal spacecraft in that it is designed to be easily 'cleaned' when in danger of capture.[1][2] Notably, data running and hacking are not yet implemented, so the ship does not yet have all intended functionality.

Features

Armored Computer Core
The computer core will run on a dedicated server that can only be accessed from the secure control terminal inside the ship. This will eliminate the threat of remote hacking.[2]
Broadcast Array
The SATA-M6A1 high power broadcast array will allow long range data transmission for both communication and emergency purposes.[2]
Data Storage Pods
All data placed inside the upcoming data storage pod will undergo a proprietary encryption algorithm. With quick loading access ports, the data storage pods will be detached from the ship for delivery or emergency.[2]
EMP Protection
The Herald will be equipped with advanced rated EMP shielding and backup power systems to avoid total power loss in an EMP blast.[2]

Development

  • The Herald creation was influenced by the Speeder from Privateer, as an unarmed racer going fast with a small cargo.[3]
  • The Herald was the 35,000,000 Dollar Stretch Goal of Star Citizen's Crowfunding campaign. The goal was reached on 2013-12-22. The Herald is designed by Josh Coons and was featured in "Ship Shape" of Around the Verse Episode 2.29 and Episode 3.7.[4][5]
  • Blue and Red "Variant": CIG showed a blue and red colored variant of the ship in the Pre-Sale Livestream 2016. According to Jared Huckaby, these skins were only made for presentation.
