The PF-5 Shadow Star was a revolutionary design from Pan Galactic dating back over a century before the formation of the UPF (back when they were merely known as Pan Galactic Conglomerates). It was a pricy craft for its time but well worth every credit considering both the payload and performance. Quite possibly the first two person crew fighter ever made, the assistant gunner helped the pilot with weapon accuracy and as such it was unparalleled in its day.

The ship is still produced today with modern upgrades, but still retains its quintet of chemical drives thus vaulting the price higher than a single atomic driven craft boasting equivilent performance. However, civilians find it much easier to acquire as such...
