A bleeding-edge advanced gunship built around a unique phase teleportation system. The finicky integrated prototype power grid is tricky and expensive to maintain but delivers excellent flux and shield performance. The Hyperion was built to 'punch up', using tactical positioning to pick its fights then engage with a relatively heavy weapon weapon loadout for its class, mounted at the expense of point defense capability. Considered a 'hangar queen', the Hyperion is scorned by quartermasters yet prized by Tri-Tachyon fleet directors who admire the purity of the ambition which can be felt throughout its design and application.
The Hyperion is a high maintenance, High Tech frigate. With its sizeable flux values and 3 medium weapon mounts, the Hyperion fills a role similar to a compact destroyer or heavy frigate.
