An interceptor was a starfighter classification typically applied to starships that sacrificed heavy ordnance payloads, armor, deflector shields, and/or a hyperdrive in favor of pure speed and agility in combat. To compensate for the lack of a hyperdrive, some types of interceptors could dock with an external hyperspace transport ring, allowing rapid interstellar travel through hyperspace. The ones that could do neither of these things were restricted to realspace, and operated in close proximity to a carrier, capital ship, planet, moon, or space station.
