The Outrider is a dedicated recon vessel fitted with scan pulse technology, allowing it to see undiscovered systems from a further distance. It's the perfect craft too stow for exploration of new areas as it has little defensive capabilities by itself. Its high speed means it can escape a lot of fire, but its short jump range won't get it far.
