A Fast Shuttle is a type of smallcraft found operating within the Distant Fringe region.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Within the Distant Fringe, a fast shuttle is usually identified as a general purpose utility smallcraft with a displacement of more than 60 dTons and maneuver-3 drives or better. Frequently they are substantially larger and faster, averaging around 90 dTons. Fast shuttles are most commonly encountered operating as in-system transports, ferrying personnel, supplies and equipment between outposts and settlements located on different worlds within a system.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The convention of declaring a smallcraft of a certain displacement tonnage range as a shuttle is a matter of local tradition. In reality there is no discernible difference between a large launch and a small shuttle.
