(Citizen Star News) - 2014-03-29 - Hand in hand with the release of Jump Point[1] #16 release that focuses on the Work In Progress revamped Idris, Chris Roberts released a surprise COMM-LINK declaring that the frequently controversial capital ship had been reclassified a size larger to Frigate. Many had argued that the increased size disclosed recently changed the ships classification. Apparently CIG agreed, but held off saying so until they were prepared to make the reclassification official. As Rob Irving said when asked, it is a Corvette until Chris Robert's says otherwise. CIG plans to design and deliver an actual Corvette at some point.
