the Ghost Ship has two salvage points, like most derelicts,
it can't be salvaged.
vessel was discovered as part of a group of derelicts by the
Mothership in a region of space know as the Sea of Lost
Souls. When the unexpected encounter interrupted the normal
process of the Mothership's hyperspace jump, a team
consisting of a pair of frigates and a squadron of fighters
was sent to investigate. It quickly became clear that this
was no ordinary ship graveyard, as the derelict vessels
powered up and attacked; inexplicably, Fleet Command also
lost control of the two frigates she had sent. The fighter
escort, under sudden attack from a Taiidan missile destroyer
though to be inactive and adrift, escaped with heavy losses.
Intelligence soon determined that the large alien 'ghost
ship' at the center of the group was generating some sort of
control field that could direct the other ships as well as
capture any Kushan capital ships sent into the field area.
Reluctant to leave the captured crews of the two frigates,
Fleet Command marshaled every strike craft available to her,
and sent them against the source of the alien control field.
Scouts and interceptors engaged and distracted the attendant
destroyers and frigates while the Kushan bombers, corvettes
and defenders pounded the ghost ship. Though their weapons
had a minimal effect on the alien vessel, each strike caused
a tiny fluctuation in the control field. The strike force
was eventually able to disable the control field, at which
point salvage teams were able to board and capture the
derelict vessels, including the Skaal Fa-class destroyer, a
Kudaark frigate, as well as two Kadesh-design multi-beam
science team sent to the ghost ship found it to be a
lifeless, automated derelict. However, while the field was
up, Fleet Intelligence was able to analyze the alien control
system. Based on this technology, Research Division was able
to develop plans for gravity warping technology based on the
alien control field, that led to the development of the
"Trapper" gravity well generator.
Due to time constraints and impending attack from Taiidan
forces, the derelict was not further investigated.
a scientific expedition has been sent to further investigate
this mysterious relic. When the team arrived at the ship
several computer data banks had been severely damaged and
repair work is currently underway. It is hoped that once we
have access to the computers we will be able to find out
more about the ghost ship's builders and its original
