*Information represents the ship's default performance.

The Asp Explorer is the civilian version of the military model Asp Mk. II's (which first saw service in 2878). Lakon Spaceways now owns the licence to construct these ships and has marketed them heavily at customers looking for their first multi-crewed ships. The ship class has earned a solid reputation for long range missions and those requiring some discretion.
