Fuel Scoops are included in craft with streamlining which allow the skimming of unrefined fuel from gas giants and the gathering of water from open lakes or oceans. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Streamlining may not be retrofitted; it must be included at the time of construction. [1]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Almost all smallcraft are streamlined, and can enter atmospheres. All can operate with unrefined fuel; they also have inherent fuel scoops which allow them to skim fuel from a gas giant. [2]
