This vehicle is the first example of human-alien technology.
It is designed as a test vehicle for initial travel through the Dimension Gates and does not carry passengers, modules, or large weapons. The small weapon slot is suitable for an anti-missile defensive system or other very small guns.
The build and use of a Dimension Probe for initial exploration of the Alien Dimension is optional. Any hybrid craft can be used for this role.
