“Lock into the escaping starship trayectory and pursue.” – captain
“…Sir, we found seven…” ―bridge officer
The trajectory decoy is a drone that is designed to confuse shipboard computers, and is very useful when on the run from justice. They can fly through space with predeterminated routes to fool enemy sensors making them think they are starships. As they are design to leave a starship signature is very difficult to identify them until they are on close sensor range. At that moment a Computer Use check (DC: 15) can be made to recognice them. Size: Medium. Weight:400. P_DC: 25. Res: Illegal (+4).
A normal rocket/torpedo can be modified to work as a Trajectory decoy buoy. It takes a Craft (Electronics ) check DC:20. It takes 2 hours to modify a torpedo.
A modify torpedo or decoy buoy will move for 2 days at half at cruising speed in the pre-recorded trayectory before draining all it’s power. A buoy (or torpedo) will only fly withing a sector before its fuel is exhausted.
