The Lightning's Ride is the modified Light Freighter owned by CJ Horn.

HistoryEdit

The Lightning's Ride started out as a normal, YT-2400 Light Freighter prior to being purchased by a young smuggler by the name of Cassandra "CJ" Horn. After it's purchase from a starship dealer on Rotex, the ship saw some of it's initial modifications such as the addition of twin Ion Cannons added to the cockpit fuselage and a minor upgrade to the shields.

Later on, as CJ and her crew became more dependent on the Ride for transportation through hostile territory and to comabt advesaries, Captain Horn had the ship seriously modified to suit her needs. This included a new power core, a stronger lift to mass ratio, upgraded Ion engines, heavier armaments, and improved shields. The Ride would also be equipped with countermeasures in order to assist in smuggling operations.

ModificationsEdit

To date, the Lightning's Ride has had a majority of her systems either replaced, modified, or rebuilt to increase performance, almost to that of a military-grade vessel. Some of these modifications are:

  • Upgraded ion engines
  • Upgraded maneuvering thrusters
  • Upgraded repulsorlift units for increased lift-to-mass ratio
  • (2) Quad Laser Cannons, dorsal and ventral
  • (2) Light Ion Cannons, linked to pilot controls
  • (2) Concussion Missle Launchers, linked to pilot controls
  • Updated Sensor modules
  • Secret Smuggling Compartment
  • Sensor Baffler Unit
  • Comm Jammer Unit
  • Additional Transponder ID (The Charmed One)
