Earth has progressed to a level of travel between nearby solar systems, some time in the future. There are occasional economic and political struggles that result in conflicts for solar-territory claims, which make for a reasonable sense of caution in certain zones, toward danger from rivaling parties; however, the systems are not rife with constant warring (yet?).
This vessel has been through several missions, undergone repairs from atmospheric conditions, lifeform assaults, and a small reactor leak, but is kept in generally good condition. It is brought into a solar system by a larger dropship as one of 7 similar models that sweep through the system gathering scientific data. This model has multiple mount-points that can be fitted with various larger instrumentation, robotics, or tools.
