A day ago Drake Interplanetary shipped the first few flight ready versions of the Buccaneer fighter to it's customers. Well for some some definitions of 'flight ready'.
Anyone being a frequent reader would know that under normal circumstances we would not touch a Drake ship with a stick. Now this are not normal circumstances, so you might be relieved to hear that we won't even touch a Drake ship with a stick under extraordinary circumstances. However none of that would ever stop a diligent reporter of sharing their opinion.
At a retail price of just about 100.000 UCE the Buccaneer is a cheap ship. And it that shows. As expected while poking a freshly delivered Buccaneer with a pointy stick that was taped to another longer less point stick multiple pieces fell off and exploded. Which is stunning in itself, so far rust has not exploded on me.
The interior is as bad as the exterior, at least if you believe my butler's claims after I had him give the seating a test. "This is worse than the wooden bench in the basement my Lord."
Now no one should claim we're overly negative, and even so Drake Interstellar has been less then generous when it comes to party invitations and free samples I want to say a few good words about the Buccaneer. If you have many minions about which you really don't care - so basically any minions - the drake is a really cheap way to strap many guns to them and watch them die in a glorious fireball of exploding rust.
