RSI Constellation Poster.jpg

When you think handsome bounty hunter making his own way in a galaxy of enemies, you think the Constellation. A multi-person freighter, it is the most popular ship in RSI’s current production array. Constellations are beloved by smugglers and merchants alike because they are modular, high powered and just downright iconic looking. The Constellation includes a manned turret, a large cargo area and a small flight deck capable of launching a snub fighter in its own defense.

History[]

The constellation model from 2918 is referred to as "the one misstep in RSI's proud lineage[1]" due potentially to issues with the construction of the hull and its plating.

Variants[]
