The Fanzhhienz class Far Trader is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The upper deck of the Fanzhienz is taken up by the working parts of the ship; the Zhodani, far less concerned with security than lmperial traders (...the thought of a hijacking attempt from honest Zhodani passengers is laughable) have allowed all major parts of the ship to be grouped together without special precautions. The lower deck holds the air raft, cargo bay, and fuel tankage.

Note: On ships with turrets installed, the turrets are loaded on the upper surface just aft of the fuel scoops, but are ccntrolled remotely from the bridge. This is a measure which allows a greater degree of centralization to ship's functions, an important consideration among small crew.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Fanzheinz class Far Trader is a ship serving with the Zhodani Navy.

The Fanzhienz class Far Trader is an old model of trading vessel frequent1y encountered in Zhodani or Zhodani-allied space; as such, they are often seen throughout the Far Frontiers Sector and in other areas which border the Consulate. Basically identical in capacity and design to the Type A2 found in the Imperium, the Fanzhienz class of traders is distinguished most by the Zhodani-inspired design elements which give it an unusual appearance.

As common in the Far Frontiers and similar regions (especially in Zhodani client states or trade partners, such as Alntzar and the Descarothe Hegemony) as more familiar small traders are in Imperial space, the Fanzhienz is an exceptionally interesting vessel.
