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

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Within the Distant Fringe, a pinnace is usually identified as a general purpose utility smallcraft with a displacement of less than 40 dTons. Frequently they are substantially smaller, averaging around 20 dTons. Pinnaces most commonly serve as subcraft on a larger parent vessel and are typically housed within a specialized hangar.

  • While aboard a parent vessel and not active as flight crew, the pinnace's personnel may be assigned alternate duties such as service crew.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

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