Experimental High Capacity Power Generator called the Vulkan Power Distrbutor
It can't be reasoned with: There are very few places in this galaxy someone can go this ship cannot follow. It is capable of pursuing someone all the way into the other ends of the Galaxy. On the inverse, if you need to hide, there are flew places this ship cannot take you. The upgraded Monarch C-4 hyperdrive was done with Verpine technicians and provides among the fastest Hyperdrive possible for this ship, an astounding 0.3.
It absolutely will not stop, ever...: It comes modified with heavy armor and shields designed to take heavy punishment from all contenders, such as ion, and multilayered shielding. The Ion shielding array is based off Arkanian designs, and provides a high degree of protection from basic ion cannons mounted on other starships of a similar size or smaller. The Multilayered shielding was based off Naboo designs and provides excellent protection against laser cannon fire from both starfighters and similar sized ships to itself. And even if all shield systems are disabled, the heavy matrix armor provides one last significant defense
Until you are dead: This ship was absolutely designed for offense, containing two long range laser cannons and secondary, rapid fire laser cannons based off the Tie Interceptor. The Primary weapon, The Dragonsbreath, has triple the normal range of average laser cannons mounted on starships of this kind. The secondary weapon system is based on Tie Interceptor lasers, which were infamously capable of destroying small asteroids, but modified to fire even faster, at the cost of a severe reduction in range and accuracy, though because its mounted on a turret it is able to swivel and fire directly behind it.
I see everything: Its sensors are extremely sensitive, even able to detect ships at three times the range of other vessel sensors. It can even detect objects or vessels using stealth drives, thanks to alchemized electronics and sensors that send out tight invisible laser scans. When the beams react to a ship in a cloaking field, they faintly reveal a hard, imperfect-to track signal that can still be followed with enough tenacity and constant adjustment of the ship sensors, though it cannot detect them as well as purpose built stealth detection devices, such as a crystal gravfield trap.
Heavy duty Powerplant: The Vulkan Power Distribution System is a high capacity solar ionization reactor, built to handle immense loads on Ships twice the size of the one it is installed on. Its is fully capable of firing both primary and secondary weapons at the same time, or keeping all three shield systems up. (though not for long, and never all at once), or simply boosting the power to one particular system such as weapons or shielding, enabling it to withstand stronger attacks or deal out more damage for a short time.
Limited Stealth: The WhisperThrust Engine captures and cools its exhaust gasses before dispersing them, allowing it to be nearly undetectable so long as it is at a low cruising speed--which is fortunately all it is capable of. Still...if it sneaks up on you this way...
Reduced Speed: The added armor, weapons reduced its speed to average. Just because it can follow you almost anywhere does not necessarily mean that it can catch you.
Reduced Maneuverability: The armor was heavy enough to reduce its manuverability considerably to below what a Star Courier is normally capable of.
Overheating: The Power system can only power multiple systems for so long, cutting power after ten minutes as a safety feature to avoid system burn out. If one chooses to boost all spare power not reserved for engines to the shields, one won't be able to use weapons, and if one focuses power to all weapons, one will have to rely on the ship armor to survive engagements at close range and hope it does not give out.
Jamming vulnerable: The ship may be heavily Ion resistant, but its systems are far from updated to current standards. Its comms and sensors are jammed easily.
Stealth failure: Coming to a stop causes a flare from its engines signature, allowing it to be detected.
Blind Spots: The secondary cannons cannot fire in a perfect 360 pattern due to the obstruction of its fins. The composite beam laser cannon in the back can only fire in a narrow spread for the same reason. One could presumably attack from above and behind, but close to the ships sides.
The Scorched Earth is the personal, heavily modified Star Courier of The Flame Geist, and in the fifty years after the threat of the Gulag Plague ended, a Dark Adept seeing this ship pursuing them through space was a herald of their demise. Equipped with shields strong enough to protect a ship twice its size and a deadly, highly accurate if slow firing primary weapon capable of attacking at three times the range of other ships in its class, this means that, like a Mandalorian, seeing it is one thing--stopping it is another matter entirely. Once a simple Republic Sienar Systems Star Courier, the Scorched Earth was deliberately purchased by The Resistors of Darkness for the Flame Geist and modified with the most advanced technology available to them, creating a heavy hitting attack craft for the use of their prize creation. Seventy five percent of The Geist's kills were at her own hands, the other twenty five is attributed to this ship. Though its systems at times require delicate adjustment and handling at times, and though it lacks the speed and manuverability of other vessels, the Scorched Earth is dangerous and powerful enough that even centuries after its creation its still capable of going toe to toe with modern vessels and usually coming out on top. Held in a custom stasis chamber after the Geist's imprisonment in resin, the Ship still functions exceptionally, as it has been perfectly preserved with the rest of Syd's equipment.
