The Shadow of justice was a revolutionary star ship at the time it was first instated, being the first to have a cloaking system able to cloak an entire star ship and the first to use a MAC cannon of a size of over 10 studs, its MAC cannon at a length of 16.
Here is the 497-plasma burning engine. Unfortunately, the 497 creates a lot of waste, and along with the fact that the new cloaking system also put of large amount of waste (that could be contained so it would still work as a cloaking system)the shadow was ridiculed for not being very "eco-friendly" by many activists. The 497 does have hyper space capabilities.
The end of the barrel of the large MAC cannon used by the Shadow, most of which is housed throughout most of the ship, forming almost a sort of backbone for the Shadow.

After 200 years of service, only a hand full have ever being destroyed by the enemy, most of them winning the battle, escaping through hyper space, or self destructing to keep it out of enemy hands. In the few instances it WAS destroyed or lost was one, in some of the first encounters with the Larazok, two, when there was a malfunction in the cloaking systems in the early days of the Shadow when the cloaking system was still being experimented with, and 2 fate is still, lost in the fastness of space. A distorted message was encountered from one and it is believed that it was a very early encounter with the Larazok. There is currently no information on the other one, and some believe something may have gone wrong in hyperspace, some even go as far to say as they may have encountered some rift to another dimension, but few believe this.
