A shift-capable ship from AH.com The Series. Of unusual design, it is crewed by the Mappist Cabal.
The Mercator is a spindle-shaped ship, about twice the length of the AH.com Ship and built around the power of the pulsating energies of the Map Thread. It also houses the Mapdala, a map which shows all of the multiverse in realtime, and is armed with mysterious but powerful weapons that look like ribbons of green energy. The title of its commander is “Maptain”.
