Hit Points: 210

A fast, maneuverable and versatile craft designed for patrol, escort, and Cap Ship defense. The Interceptor is especially feared by non-combat vessels, strike craft, and resource operations.

"The story involves the Hiigarans and details their struggle against a raging warrior race, the Vaygr. ... Certainly, the new enemy is completely new, distinctive and menacing." - Dan Irish, Executive Producer

"The two sides are different in terms of technology so you won't even be able to research the other's type of tech. They share basic stuff like resourcing, but that's it. Hiigarans are more well rounded with their fleets where the Vaygr are much more specialized in their uses." - Joshua Mosquiera, Lead Designer

"From the Inner Rim, the Hiigarans have to stand up to this bitter enemy that wields the power of the ancients." - Action Trip

This fighter, the Vaygr equivalent of the Interceptor, in the demo operates in squadrons of seven craft (as opposed to the Hiigaran counterpart, which has squadrons of five). In previous screenshots, the squadrons were nine craft.

This ship labeled in the game text as an "assault craft", but the Vaygr voice-over in the multiplayer game still refers to it as an "interceptor."
