Introduced at the same time as the Arrow, the Starburst is another racer which is almost too fast for its own good.


Physical Characteristics[edit]

The Starburst uses the Discoverer model.


The starburst has no weapons therefore has no combat capability. While it is impossible to obtain in vanilla TC, it would have considerable usefulness as a scouting ship.



You can get one as a reward for the plot Shady Business.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The Starburst is best applied to fast-mapping, asteroid scanning and scouting roles.
