The Kimera was a high-tech battlecruiser operated by the Kimeran Pirates. It was commanded by Captain Buzan.

It housed advanced technology such enabling point-to-point transport. It didn't require a fixed piece of technology to transport people onto and off the ship. However, the technology required accurate positioning information which came from transponders. If those were knocked off-line, the teleportation system could not be used.

The Kimera was also relatively stealthy. Captain Buzan was of the opinion that "nothing can track the Kimera".
