An extremely dangerous Terraformer M3 fighter, the #deca.cefa is very cheap, though not so for its weaponry. It is lightly shielded but quite fast and lethal due to its ability to mount a non-energy-draining corvette-class weapon, the Prototype Matter/Anti-Matter Launcher. A full set of these makes the #deca.cefa a very expensive asset to lose, but one of the most dangerous fighters in the game and fully capable of destroying most corvettes. It can only be purchased in Aldrin and its weapons can be very hard to stockpile without the use of an exploit.


Originally terraforming drones deployed from the #deca CPU ship, these ships appear to have been modified along with #deca to perform a defensive role.

Physical Characteristics[edit]

The #deca.cefa is a blue-gray, blocky ship with two large cannons, and engines mounted on spindly stalks.


The #deca.cefa's weapons array is capable of dealing serious injuries to corvette-class ships. However, it is not the most heavily shielded fighter and the corvette poses almost as much risk to the #deca.cefa. It should be used to perform a surgical strike against a medium-sized target, with plenty of distractions keeping the #deca.cefa clear of the enemy's target locks.


The #deca.cefa can mount up to eight of either EEMPCs or PMAMLs in its fixed mounts. Its turret can carry a pair of EMPCs. Finally, it can use Poltergeist missiles.


The #deca.cefa is available at either of the two Aldrin Ship Production Bases in Aldrin orbit.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The #deca.cefa is an unexceptional M3 unless used in a certain role: due to its PMAML compatibility it can be used in a small wing to effectively destroy capital ships and corvettes.
