- The Federal Argon Government commissioned Bala Gi Research Inc. to develop a heavy fighter, larger than the current Nova, to fulfil a wider range of roles. The result, the Eclipse, enjoys a larger cargo bay than the Nova, at the expense of some speed and manoeuvrability. The Argon military are glad to welcome this craft to their arsenal, with some suggestion that a missile gunboat role may emerge for the Eclipse.
