Blackbird is a Durance-class tramp freighter, commissioned by Dosojin Transport Inc., and has been in and out of service for the past 10 years. Her current status is decommissioned and in storage at Lumiere & Sutton Shipyards, Beylix.
— Blackbird is hard for sensors to detect when her transponder, navsats, comms, and pulse beacon are switched off. Using the ship’s stealthy quirk is a Ship’s Alertness + Pilot’s piloting skill adding d4 to the roll. The result is the difficulty for other ships’ sensors and scanners to detect you.
