The Steam is a space fighter launched from the Star Leaf and other Solnoid battleships. What is interesting about the Steam is its highly streamlined method of deployment. A pilot quickly takes her seat in the detached cockpit and straps herself in while it plummets down a chute to be dropped into the fuselage of the fighter. After this rapid method of boarding the fighter a section of the Star Leaf’s hull opens out to reveal the huge racks that hold Steams in groups of four. The Star Leaf has 4 of these racks enabling it to launch 16 Steams at the same time.
