When humanity first discovered fold space and antimatter energy, there was a huge space race between the biggest corporations on Earth to colonise planets in the Local Spur of our galaxy. Once humanity ventued to the far side of the Milky Way, they finally found advanced alien civilizations, leading to a period known as the Enlightening. New trade routes were established, business boomed, and a second wave of colony planets were founded in the Centaurus Arm.
Many of the first wave colony planet’s were then abandoned by their corporations, as more profit could be gained further away from Mother Earth. Trade stagnated, economies crashed and these planets now found themselves untethered. A new age of Space Piracy dawned as first wave pioneers set out to seek their fortune amongst the stars.
Captain Swift and his loyal pirate crew have made port on the automated mining planet, Aeox. They strip antimatter energy cores from large ships and craft hundreds of high value energy cells to sell on the black market. Many planets pay handsomely for one of these which can fuel their settlements for years. Aeox is a metal mining planet and after hacking the system, Swift’s crew can now siphon off whatever they need for manufacturing.
In order to move around the planet efficiently to harvest various metal resources from the mining rigs, Captain Swift has a pirate skiff, The Black Marlin. It's speed is unrivaled as it moves quickly and silently above the dry ground of Aeox. It's hull can be filled with resources below deck and a couple of crew member can stand on top. In the case of an invasion of his planet, the skiff can also be armed with five different weapon options including double cannons!
The Black Marlin is part of the Space Pirates collection, which was first available on our Patreon channel in April 2021. Our Patreon creates different collections of sci-fi miniatures each month - https://www.patreon.com/printminis.
