The Athelstan class merchant ships are presently being built by SIE at their corporate facilities at Grote/Glisten (Spinward Marches 1731). The unsettled situation in the Imperium has left SIE unable to procure ships from their usual suppliers at Glisten. The Athelstan is a modified Type R2 design, and is fairly typical of ships built in frontier areas with an integral refueling capability, a maneuver drive capable of making a landing while fully loaded on any inhabitable planet, and a full armament package.

Unlike many other SIE vessels, the Athelstan does not ordinarily carry a robotic crew supplement since the supply of cheap robots has also dried up.

Standard armament of an Athelstan is a triple missile turret, a triple beam laser turret and two triple sandcaster turrets.
