SPLICER-5000 “FIREHAWK” STARSHIP REGISTRY

Starship Registry Data

“The Splicer 5000 isn’t a fighter.  It’s an extension of the pilot’s body and will.  Flying one is like growing your own wings,” Toran Markus, Splicer 5000 lead test pilot and first Splicer 5000 ace.

The Splicer 5000 All Environ Superiority Fighter currently makes up the bulk of the UCSB Fighter forces. The fighter is the direct evolution of the, now retired, 4000 model Splicer. Originally based on the space frame of the 4000 the Splicer 5000 is a whole new beast. The splicer 5000 is the most versatile fighter in service. Its impressive array of armament include a pair of shark torpedoes giving it a strong strike capability.

Splicer 5000s are easily serviced, the modular design allowing for individual systems to be readily replaced in the field. The Splicer 5000 features an equipment bay on the dorsal structure above the engines. This bay allows for the installation of mission specific hardware modules, such as advanced communications gear, hypersled control modules and Sensor Masking Systems. The modular design also allows for easy weapon substitution.

Marine Variants of the Splicer 5000 typically replace the wingtip mounted Bio-cannons with Mass Driver, and heavy assault variants replace the Narfic Cannons with heavy mass drivers, and the bio cannons with Heavy PLASERs.

Heavy assault Splicer 5000’s also feature under fuselage missile pylons, while these hard points are featured on all variants they are typically not used as they leave the missiles exposed.
