Conquistador-class explorer

The Conquistador is the staple vessel of the Republican Pathfinders group - a hardy, self-reliant and tenacious frigate which makes the Lavigne-class explorer look like a weekender's yacht. It is very well-equipped, including state-of-the-art jump and power plants and powerful computers and instrumentation, and defends its investment with an immense array of nuclear-tipped missiles. As one of the few non-governmental bodies with permitted to carry nuclear weapons, this makes the Conquistador a hard target to take for the typical pirate - and on the fringes of human space, where they're usually found, their skippers will almost invariably wind up shooting first.
