One of the earlier Fenships and possibly the earliest purpose-built Fenship, the Epsilon Blade is one of the few privately-owned armed ships in Fenspace.


  • The Epsilon Blade is named after two deceased friends of the ship's owner.
  • The engines were twin ion thrusters before being handwaved.
  • The ship bears a remarkable resemblance to the parachronic conveyers illustrated in the roleplaying supplement GURPS Infinite Worlds; it is not, however, capable of interdimensional travel.

In most Fenspace Infinities settings, the Epsilon Blade is sister ship to the Digamma Thunderbolt.
