#1 Eta-2 Actis-class Interceptor
From the first time I saw this ship, it was instantly my favorite. It was a wonderful mix of both classic ships. It has the S-foils of the X-Wing as well as the full socket for an R2 unit. When the S-foils are opened, it has a suggestive TIE design to it as well as a slightly modified TIE screech. Even the cockpit had what would become the TIE design. Small, fast and extremely maneuverable, they carried both laser cannons and ion cannons. All the perks of this ship would eventually lead to the TIE fighter.
