Dedicated fighter pilots swear by axiom "a ship can never be too fast". Nothing exemplifies this philosphy better than the Lighnting. The desgin was born when the schemes for an interplanetary missile thruster went missing from Jonfied R&D lab. An unnamed Jonfield R&D engineer was declared "missing" shortly after. - Ingame Description

The lightning is a fighter that introduces the player to a whole lot of new things. This is the first ship thag can be upgraded. It is also the first one to be able to mount a warp drive and the first one to cost money and need time to repair after a defeat. It is a fast ship and is useful in class battles but the inability to mount 2x2 modules hinders its potential there.
