Description: The Starbird was an attempt by the Nubian Shipyards to move into new territory as the years of tyranny by the Empire ended, they launched this vessel as a fast and tough transport vessel capable of carrying valuable cargo or passengers in complete safety. However the extremely high price has meant that sales have been poor, the excellent appointments throughout the vessel, and the extremely sleek chromed hull mean that it is worth every credit of its price. With decent arms, and plenty of cargo space to modify it has become popular with some galactic billionaires who like the retro style of having a Nubian Vessel, along with the rarity of having a vessel only built in such limited numbers. The Starbird is an excellent vessel, which deserves more widespread use and purchase, but is unlikely to see it as even its second hand price exceeds that of its competition by many times.
