When creating Herald, Drake engineers knew what makes a good data runner. This is why Herald comes with the most powerful engines in it's class that outperform any other ship in the verse. You can be sure that the data you have will be transported fast!
Storing and transporting data is not an easy task. This is why Herald comes equipped with plenty of data storage that not only can contain but also encrypt any valuable information you will be able to find. This way, even if it lands in hostile hands, it will be nearly impossible to use it against you! The data pods can be quickly accessed and detached which comes in handy when you want to move them somewhere else.
When collecting data, you will quickly find out how important is to have a proper workstation. The amount of hi-tech components that create it ensure that your ability to collect that vital data is only dependant on your own skills. This workstation is hooked up to a sensor array around the centre of the ship that can be deployed when needed.
JAM PACKED INTERIOR
Even though Herald is almost 50% engines, Drake designers managed to fit fully functional interior into that tiny space that was left. Other than cockpit and scanning station, Heralds interior contains bed, toilet, sink, gun rack and additional storage space near the end of the ship. This ensures that your long-range data running missions will be as civil as they can be with this size of the ship.
