The SFr Mephisto is a Shivan-designed freighter. Among the three Shivan freighters encountered by the Terrans and Vasudans, the Mephisto is the smallest of the three. The Mephisto is ill-equipped to repel enemies, with only six light laser turrets for defense. Still, compared to the SFr Dis, the Mephisto's much smaller profile means that it will probably last a little longer in a fire fight than the Dis under the right circumstances.

FS1 Tech Room Description
The Mephisto freighter behaves much like one of our own. Only it is far more powerful and dangerous. Very little data is available on this ship class.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The SFr Mephisto class is equivalent to the Dis class in size and combat capabilities. Given their wildly different configurations, they must serve different purposes for the Shivans, but Allied Intelligence currently offers no further information on this matter.
Mephistopheles is a demon in European literary tradition. A devil named Mephisto appears in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragic play Faust. Mephistopheles also is associated to the demon of inventions and knowledge. Supposedly, his mouth was always open.
