PEACEKEEPER MARAUDER

Peacekeeper Marauders are the sedan version of the PK Prowler sports coupe. Okay, Aeryn might say it's about 80 times more complicated than that, but I kinda like this analogy.

Marauders are the next step up from Prowlers, capable of carrying four or five PK commandos if they're heavily armed, seven or eight if they've just got pistols and can sit on each other's laps. Typically, these ships don't carry a lot of weaponry, although they're well-shielded; they're built to transport boarding parties that move in after Prowlers have filled the target full of holes.

Marauders are also outfitted with a lot of high-tech scanning equipment, which means they're great at searching for other vessels (as Talyn and his crew knew all too well). Occasionally, Marauders are specially armed with an Immobilizer Pulse weapon, turning these "search" missions into "search and destroy" missions. Or, at least, "search and capture with a whole lotta pain and screaming" missions.
