The Python is a fast and powerful Frigate.

   

Description

The Python is a Frigate Class ship. It has four Small Phasers, one Light Laser, one Light Flak Cannon, and decent maneuverability. It has a recognizable trapezoidal shape and can easily be picked out among other ships.

Interior

Most of the interior of the Python is taken up by a simple hallway leading to the cockpit. Directly behind the cockpit is a pair of benches. The cockpit is separated from the ship by an orange door. Inside is a small, black pilot's seat and some neon parts corresponding to the faction color.

Advantages

  • Speedy.
  • Cheap.
  • Great for distracting Starbases.
  • Can wear down shields quickly, with twice the firepower of the Raven and the Avenger.
  • Great support ship.

Disadvantages

  • Low health.
  • Low hull damage.
  • Rather large for a Frigate.
  • Not a good solo ship.

Strategy

  • This ship does not do well alone. But in a fleet, you can quickly wear down an opponent's shields while they are distracted by the larger ships in your fleet.
  • Try to stay in the blind spots of enemy ships by using your superior agility so they cannot fire back at you.

Version History

  • Received a buff in version .61g adding its turrets.

Trivia

  • Has changed very little since it first got added.
