Trident Light Frigate
The Trident Light Frigate is the second smallest of the capital class vessels. They are fairly slow-moving ships with heavy armour for their size. NPC Tridents are typically found in two configurations. In Hive and Border Skirmish missions they have four "small" turrets and a forward-facing cannon, and only four standard capital ship turrets in Escort Missions. A docking bay is located at the bottom back of this ship which provides access to repair/rearming facilities and turret control.
People have seen various people from different factions that are not players flying around in these mysterious convoys, these go from place to place in the universe, like a transport. They will let you off at the destination at their last jump point.
Construction is a long process involving harvesting materials from bots, mining or purchasing ores, purchasing materials, and finally building components with over 1,000 missions. The entire process is a long one aside from the massive amount of raw materials needed to build the components, there are also caps on how many of some components you can build in one day. One material harvested from bots is Synthetic SilkSteel [sss] (4cu), of which over 8,000 units are required (in previous versions, over 35,000 and 75,000 units were required).
