SynTech market themselves as a cutting-edge company – from their personal equipment up to their new line of starships. The Edgerunner is the quasi-military market; a sleek transport vessel designed to evade all but the most advanced scans.
The ship’s unique selling point is the ’Tacit Thrust’ propulsion suite. SynTech engineers at first created a pair of very efficient engines. Around these they built a unique ‘mask’, a dish curving around each thruster to further limit the energy signature. The engineers went on to build a shuttle scale ship around the ‘Tacit Thrust’ system capable of high speed and nimble manoeuvres.
In order to remain on the right side of the law, the ship is unarmed. It’s best defence is stealth and clever piloting. A number of the ships were purchased by the Asian Coalition and European Union military forces; the latter became popular amongst independent operators needing to move people and cargo around discretely.
