Conventional Pattern Starship: A designation applied to starships within the Distant Fringe region: vessels fitted with standard inbuilt fuel tankage.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Starships are limited by the performance of DeVoss-type jump drives - the so-called Jump-2 Barrier.

Conventional pattern starships typically carry adequate internal fuel to perform one jump and to support the power plant for approximately four weeks. Long range starships, conversely, carry additional onboard fuel reserves. Ships fitted with drop-tanks or collapsible fuel tanks are referred to as x-range vessels.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Conventional vessels are the most efficient in terms of revenue generated per ton of displacement - more of their internal space can be used as cargo storage.
