When the Colonial Council was fighting the Vell-os, many transports were wrecked beyond repair, causing a number of shipping concerns to go out of business. A young engineer named Eyeya Soyahc found a solution: because the massive Leviathans were too large to be destroyed completely, he organized salvage teams to grab the cargo rings from the debris. The rings were repaired and fitted with engines. The Pegasus was a commercial success, and is now manufactured by Sigma Shipyards.

The name of this craft is rather misleading, as it is slow and plodding. It does feature some expandability, and can be configured to be somewhat less vulnerable to attackers. As with most standard designs, Pirates have adapted the Pegasus to their purposes and you will occasionally encounter a more heavily armed variant flying the black flag. Veteran players recognize any such encounter as an excellent opportunity to obtain a useful freighter without the usual bother of buying and equipping one.
