Most of them can't. Well, most of the capital ships can do it, but very few Mental Model by themselves, and no other destroyers that I know of.

It isn't called that (I borrowed the term from Elite Dangerous for Cantata, for no better reasons than I like it and it's not what FTL is called elsewhere in UF, which makes it distinctive), but at least a few of the larger ships in Arpeggio can teleport, yes.

>Also, had to Google Rensouhou-chan, but hey, that's what it's for.

The others were too distracted by the circumstances to notice it (tr.: I couldn't think of a way to mention it that wasn't too clunky), but the turrets on Shimakaze's ship body actually have the face on them, similar to the option on this model kit. :)
