The Basilisk glides silently sunward, her iron turning to gold in Saturn’s glow. The seventh boat of the Cockatrice class, she was analogous to the torpedo boat and the submarine of more familiar seas. Armed with long range rockets, she could deal a lethal (if inexact) blow to ships and installations many times her size.
