Living Starship (Ex) In micro-gravity, near-vacuum environment an asteroid drake can surround itself with a field of psychokinetically controlled plasma, which allows it to fly in space. Away from larger structures, the field strengthens by multiple orders of magnitude allowing the creature to match starship speeds, and forms a protective shield capable of surviving direct starship-grade weaponry hits. It also focuses the drake's breath weapon into long-distance blasts of plasma that can breach hulls. In spaceship combat, an asteroid drake can take a piloting action and a gunnery action, plus one additional action selected from balance (helm phase), divert (engineering phase, restores 10 shield points), scan (helm phase), shoot (gunnery phase, allows using plasma breath second time in the same turn), or target system (helm phase).
Asteroid drakes are inhabitants of asteroid belts, comets, and small moons that are capable of flying through space and hunt small starships, shuttles, freighters, and mining vessels. While not terribly bright, they are cunning and aggressive creatures, using clouds of dust, gas, and fields of debris to their advantage. They usually feed on radiation and gasses formed out of plasma-vaporized minerals, though they enjoy an occasional snack of organic food, be it astronauts' flesh, or hydropnic-garden algae container.
