|X³: Terran Conflict|
- The Griffon was the design which kicked off development of similar drone frigates by the other races. Developed with technology bought from the black market, initially originating from Aldrin, its design is surprisingly simple. An exposed framework supporting the drones, a single maintenance line and modified sensor arrays are all that sets this frigate apart from any other capital ship. Even though there are now more technologically advanced drone frigates on the market, the Griffon has had the time to be refined into what is arguably the most reliable frigate in the known universe. With 11 layers of failsafes and multiple redundancies, the ship simply never gives up.
