A properly outfitted Idris with an effective crew can serve as a torpedo boat; in rare instances, the Idris has even used its speed and maneuverability advantages to scuttle opposing cruisers.[2]


The original Idris corvette is designed by Ryan Church (Freelance Concept Artist) in 2013 along with other contributors include Chris Olivia (Chief Visual Officer), Ben Lesnick (Community Manager), Dave Haddock (Lead Writer), Rob Irving (Lead Designer), Chris Smith (Lead Vehicle Artist), Pete Mackay (Designer), and Chris Roberts.[3] The ship was announced in June 2013.

In 2014-03, the team from CGBot whiteboxing the flight deck interior found that the original concept was not sized to fit with the Hornet model as the original concept used the smaller Hornet model from the 2012 cinematics. Since the Idris need to carry multiple Hornets, the ship was upscaled to a frigate.[4][5] The rework was handled by the Foundry 42 UK team, with contribution from Mike Northeast (F42 Senior Designer), Mark Skelton (CIG Art Director), Paul Jones (F42 Art Director), Stuart Jennett (F42 Concept Artist), Bjorn Seinstra (Senior Artist), Tom Johnson (F42 Project Manager), and Chris Roberts.[5] This was just one of many large project changes made throughout late 2014 and early 2015, including ships, procedural planets, the starmap and the lore timeline.[citation needed ]
