Ship Review - Python
Roughly a third more space again than the Monitor and a better turn of speed are the first impressions of the Python. The next thing to notice is how badly it steers. The increased velocity is not very impressive (although this is a large ship) and serves more to illustrate the slothful nature of the Monitor more than any outstanding characteristic of the Python.
Its lasers pack a reasonable punch, if you can point them at anything, but for defence it relies largely on its strong shields. Four missiles is too few for this ship, since they should form a major part of a large vessel's weaponry. Equipment for this ship is reasonably priced, especially considering the size of the beast it's being fitted to.
