The Cardinal Virtue
The Cardinal Virtue is a small blockade runner of unknown origin and class, and has been in circulation around the Delta Quadrant for approximately twenty years. The ship features highly advanced technology, with several of the primary systems based on superior technology to that of the Federation. Among some of these technologies are a quantum slipstream drive, thorium-based impulse engines, and an advanced cloaking device. The ship has been upgraded several times over the course of it's life, with many of the previous owners hailing from a shadier side of society, and so many of the upgrades are geared toward speed and tactical power, making it a perfect pirate vessel.
