Skether'qan Class Starship[3]

The Skether'qan, aka the Messenger, is one of the smallest Tau ships equipped with a Gravitic Drive.[Needs Citation]


The Skether'qan is not a true fighting vessel in its own right, possessing only a single small Railgun battery. Instead, it stays near larger ships and uses its excellent maneuverability to stay out of danger as it uses its sophisticated Tracking System to aid other vessels in a fleet in targeting enemy ships.[1][Replace citation]
