Basically a privateer, it operated on a commission in the Funnell Squadron. It massed 3,000 tons, and did not carry missiles because its intended prey was lightly-built pirate craft of a few hundred tons, but it mounted eight 4-inch plasma cannon in separate mountings. It was built in 5072 CE as an anti-pirate cruiser on Hallowell.
It had a crack crew, with superb gunnery and navigation.9:8 She had picked up top Fleet officers and crews after the Peace of Amiens was signed and most of fleet ships were pulled off active duty.9:19
The Governor of Sunbright, Blaskett, had commissioned the Estremadura for hunting blockade-runners. It operated in the Madison System—where ships from the Funnel Squadron would not be permitted—and along the route from there to Cremona. It carried its captures to a prize court on Westerbeke, where they were always condemned.9:10
