FreeSpace 2 DescriptionEdit

The GTEP Hermes escape pod is now standard equipment on every GTVA warship of cruiser size or larger. Each ship has several escape pods magnetically coupled to airlocks scattered around the ship's outer hull. Not intended for whole-crew evacuations, the Hermes has space for up to 20 crew members. Each pod is propelled by a small fusionengine, enough to remove the pod from the immediate vicinity of an exploding warship. It is also capable of subspace jumps.
