HISTORY
The Talon is one of the most common fighters on the Terran-Kilrathi frontier, owing to the 2654 illegal sale of the fighters by Gemini Sector Governor Menesch to the Church of Man. For the fifteen years following that event, Talons became not only the primary vehicles of neo-luddite terrorism, but also common tools of pirates, mobsters and any other sort of illegitimate operation that might benefit from a fast, cheap fighter. Further complicating the matter, many frontier militia units also use the craft. In short, space is full of Talons.

In 2790, a disabled Talon was discovered at Nav Point #190 in the Tri-System. The CIS issued a Code 3 Top Priority call for the destruction of the ship and the capture of its pilot. The Papagod Clan deployed a pair of Temblers to capture the ship for themselves. At this time, it is unknown why the appearance of an antique fighter caused such a serious reaction.
