A fast and agile vessel that can act as a "gunship" due to its configuration.
The Argon Discoverer compared to other ships in the Argon Fleet, is relatively young. It is armed with two lasers, is light, versatile, and very manoeuvrable. It is the preferred training fighter for Argon pilots with the more experienced being promoted to fly the more exacting Buster and the Nova. Today they are also used for scouting, and it is quite common to find a small wing of these ships accompanying an exploration carrier.
