The Eldred barely won their war for survival against the Slavern. In the aftermath, The Admiralty devised a plan to defend Eldred territory from all sides. The Intermediate Cruiser was supposed to be a great patrol ship, but the Admiralty didn't like its poor performance and the few prototypes there were, got consigned to the scrap heap. One of those ships found new life with a pirate crew, this is its stat block. With dual Heavy Laser Cannons it hits harder than a lot of ships in its Tier.

The Starship Series delivers ships you can use in your Starfinder campaigns.

This booklet contains:

The Eldred Pirate Cruiser: a Tier 6 vessel, includes a full primary stat block with crew skills. Deckplans and Bridge image.

This installment of the ship-supplements released under the Galaxy Pirates brand clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

Okay, so the light cruiser is a tier 6 Large destroyer with average maneuverability and turn 2, using an Arcus Max power core and sporting a signal basic drift engine. With mk 4 armor and defenses, we get AC and TL 19, and weaponry-wise, we get fire-linked heavy laser cannons and light torpedo launchers forward, a gyrolaser on the port-side and starboard-side, a coilgun turret and no weaponry on the aft. The ship has a proper array of expansion bays, with this one sporting a gym, but only one escape pods compared to the 2 of the regular light cruiser. As far as crew is concerned, the best ones are the Pilot and Captain. The pirate cruiser was originally modeled after the intermediate cruiser, and as always, the ship does come with a Computers table that allows PCs to deduce facts about the ship model, and the pdf does feature a brief elaboration on the ship’s details.

The supplement also comes with an AMAZING full-color map of the ship, which explains all components of the ship, from airlocks to the placement of the weaponry. (Very minor nitpick: The map references a rail cannon and plasma cannons, instead of the fire-linked heavy cannons; it’d have been nice to see the map reference the weapons of the ship directly, but those are details.)The map deserves another shoutout: Other publishers would have tweaked the basics of the light cruiser map, and this did not go this route. Instead, we have a truly distinct map: The ship accounts for gym, and e.g. torpedoes and engines are placed differently. This creates a unified Eldred ship aesthetic, while still differentiating between the different ships. We also get a great, handout style one-page version of the ship’s artwork, and a full page of paper stand-in minis you can print out, and the ship comes with a full, already filled-in ship sheet for your convenience. Huge plus!

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are very good, I noticed no serious snafus on a formal or rules-language level. Layout adheres to a nice two-column full-color standard, and the pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. The artwork of the ship and the cartography are both full color and amazing.
The pirate cruiser is a cool vessel – it has these little touches that make it feel more optimized than the regular models, a bit rawer (less escape pods!) and the map going one step beyond is a great thing. All in all, a well-crafted ship, well worth a final verdict of 4.5 stars, rounded up.
