Nomad (Individual DropShip)
The Nomad was a DropShip of unspecified type serving with the 4th Skye Rangers during the Third Skye Rebellion in mid-3065. On 2 July 3065 it was ordered to deliver a message directly to the captain of the WarShip Simon Davion, as a message carried by a ship could not be intercepted.
The DropShips used by the 4th Skye Rangers had previously been described as "mostly spheroid Unions and Overlords, with a few aerodyne Leopards in the mix," establishing that the Nomad is of one of these designs. Being used as a messenger vessel suggests it was likely a Leopard, the fastest of these designs.
