As with several types of alien spacecraft, the Vanduul Scythe was repurposed for use by UEE citizens. Given the conflict between UEE forces and the Vanduul, this was largely done via military outfitters like Anvil Aerospace. Vanduul iconography is still front and center in the ship's HUD, but elements like the cockpit had to be refitted significantly so that human pilots would be able to use the craft.
A limited number of Scythes were sold as part of the initial Kickstarter campaign for Star Citizen. It's been confirmed that there are no plans to offer the ship up for purchase again, but there will be other ways for players to get some flight time in the craft.
For one, future free-fly weeks will feature the ship occasionally. In addition, Imperator subscribers will receive a token for additional time piloting the Scythe each month. It's been confirmed that these tokens will stack, meaning that players who have subscribed for some time already will find themselves in possession of a considerable amount of time with the ship available to them when it is added into the game.
