Sith Infiltrator

Built from heavily modified designs based on the Republic Sienar Systems' Star Courier, the Sith lnfiltrator is a longrange reconnaissance ship built specifically to carry the influence of Darth Sidious to the far-flung worlds of the Old Republic. Sidious had the lnfiltrator, dubbed Scimitar, constructed for his apprentice Darth Maul, so that Maul could travel undetected to and from Coruscant on errands for his Sith Master.

Although the ship is a completely new design (of which Sienar Systems claims complete ignorance), it actually carries on a long-standing Sith tradition of small, virtually undetectable ships used by the Sith during their thousand years of hiding. any mysterious hyperspace accidents that coincidentally claimed the lives of Jedi can no doubt be attributed to Sith lnfiltrators.

The extremely effective-and shockingly expensive stygium crystal cloaking device built into Scimitar's fuselage enables the ship to come and go without interference. This is a vital necessity for Maul and Sidious, who both have constant business on Coruscant. The cloak-more powerful than ordinary Republic cloaking devices-makes Scimitar impossible to detect from longer than medium range using sensors, conferring a -10 penalty on Spot, Listen, Search, and Computer Use checks made to find it. Even if the ship is successfully located, its indistinct lines mean that any successful attack still has a 40% miss chance, as though the ship were always nine-tenths concealed.

Where others are blind to Maul's ship, Scimitaris more than adequately equipped to detect theirs. Scimitar boasts a state-of-the-art tracking system (providing a +4 equipment bonus on Computer Use checks to detect or monitor objects). The ship also possesses an experimental sublight ion drive that, despite requiring extremely large radiator panels to vent excess heat, makes Scimitar faster and more maneuverable than any ship of a comparable class, and even many starfighters.

In addition to enough provisions to keep Maul (and up to six passengers-or captives) alive for a shortjaunt through hyperspace, Scimitar features equipment a Sith Lord might need in the pursuit of his duty: bombs, mines, poisons, drugs, caustic chemicals, weapons, survival gear, implements of torture, a trio of Dark Eye probe droids, and Maul's Sith speeder. The ship also includes an escape pod though Maul's vanished under unknown circumstances between the time he left Coruscant for Tatooine and the moment his ship was recovered by the Republic authorities on Naboo after his death.
