Larger than a bomber but smaller than a ship of the line, corvettes occupy an interesting space in the pantheon of warships. While they lack the heavy armor and the capital weaponry of a cruiser, corvettes are more maneuverable and are highly configurable. Even the least expensive models feature numerous upgrade slots and multiple hard points for turrets and missiles. Corvettes are also frequently used for boarding actions; a single ship can support a team of marines capable of taking the fight to the decks of larger warships and stations.
|“||The Idris Corvette has fighters. It's going to have between two and three, we haven't 100% determined yet. But, the difference between this and the Constellation is that it will be able to have the single seater fighters that you can pledge for. So, you'll be able to have two Hornets in it, or two 300is, or an M50. It won't be able to have any of the bigger ones that are multi-person.||”|
Since then, it's been confirmed that the Idris will be able to support three ships.
|“||The Idris Corvette (named after the the battle of Idris IV) has been demilitarized for private ownership, even though entrepreneurial pirate packs have been known to spring for one.||”|

Lore initially described the Idris class corvette as being made by Roberts Space Industries. Ben Lesnick later wrote that this was made in error, due to Ryan Church working on the design, and that the ship's manufacturer has always been Aegis Dynamics.
