“Suleiman” Class Scout/Courier
This iconic scout survey ship is one of the most common ships in the cosmos. This model of starship is often deeded to loyal members of the Imperial Scout Service or ISS after many years of service. Its relatively cheap price and versatility also lends to its popularity with non-scouts. Its familiar and simple wedge shape allows it to skim gas giants for fuel and enter planetary atmospheres. A modest armament and cargo space fill out its features and make it a good all purpose ship for long haul exploration.
“Viper” Class Fighter
The Viper has been described as an excuse for a ship wrapped around all gun and engine. This ship is designed for one thing.. fighting. No crew space and very little cargo make this ships function singular. Its dual triple turrets make it a formidable offensive platform but the relative small size doesn’t allow for much hull armoring. But a state of the art power plant allows for it to zoom away at 6G when the battle isn’t going its way.
“Moriane” Class Free Trader
This rough and rugged ship is designed to do two things well. Carry lots of cargo and get it there in one piece. An adequate jump
and maneuver drive are paired with decent weaponry to defend itself in a scrap. But it gives up armor for more hauling capacity so it can’t linger long in a fight.
“Jay Hawk Mark II” Class Far Trader
Giving up some cargo space for more engine, this sturdy trade ship has more powerful power plant and drives to allow for longer haul trading missions. It also had to shed armor making it more vulnerable to attack.
“Lord Baltimore” Class Star Yacht
This beautiful piece of machinery is designed more for show than any functional purpose. It does have a fast maneuver drive, for racing other well-to-do nobles in-system and staying out of trouble. A small cargo area and decent number of well appointed staterooms allow for bringing friends along or boarders when the funds run low.
“Kteiroa” Class Prospector
This ship is designed for those serious about asteroid mining. The powerful mining laser strips asteroids and other space rocks of their valuable mineral content and is even usable in combat. A rough and tough workhorse, it’s heavily armored hull is a necessary trait in crowded asteroid fields. It can also be used to set up automated mining operations which can generate constant income for the enterprising Belter.
“Bastien” Class Subsidized Liner
This ship is the cattle car, expressly designed for moving folks from point A to point B as fast and as comfortable as possible. Its big, bulky and not too fast in system, though it can jump decent distances. Don’t expect much offensive or defensive capability; however with the right pilot, this ship is a cash cow.
Magellan Class Lab Ship
For those of a less adventurous bend, this ship allows them to search the cosmos in the pursuit of knowledge. These ships are mobile universities, platforms for scientists to study the stars and distant planets. They move like a barge and have little weaponry or armor, but are relatively safe as long as they stay in near orbits around planets. This is their favorite position anyways for forays down to the planet and studying the make-up of the alien atmospheres.
