|The GTSC Faustus|
FS1 Tech Room Description
The Faustus Science vessel was, and still is, a civilian craft. However, in the 14 years since the Terran-Vasudan war began, more and more of these were commissioned by the GTA in order to pursue military research. However, its obvious value, poor fighting capabilities, and lack of speed make it a prime target for enemy ships; hence, you will rarely find many of these anywhere near the front lines of battle.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GTSC Faustus is primarily a class of civilian research vessels. During times of peace, they serve as mobile laboratories for scientists in many disciplines. During wartime, however, Faustus vessels are commandeered by the military, mostly for weapons research. It was on a Faustus ship, during the Great War, that Shivan shield technology was first reverse-engineered from a captured Shivan fighter. Faustus vessels have poor armor and only a few weak turrets for defense. Only desperate circumstances find a Faustus anywhere near the front lines.
In Latin, faustus means "auspicious" or "lucky." In classical German legend, Faust is a character who makes pact with the Devil. Faust's character is assumed to have been based on Dr. Johann Georg (1480 – 1540) , a German magician and alchemist.
