The Gaia class Luxury Liner is a large passenger starship.
The Luxury Liner is a large commercial passenger transport commonly encountered along Star Lanes within the Distant Fringe region. It is classified as a Luxury Liner and is constructed as a conventional design. Similar designs have been in use from the time the Distant Fringe was first settled.
- The vessel is a TL-11 design.
Basic Ship Characteristics
Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. 
|1.||Tonnage||The Luxury Liner is constructed using a 10,000 dTon hull built in a generally conical configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving good atmospheric performance that is reliant on its onboard gravitic systems.|
|2.||Crew|| Total Crew Complement: 157
There are 900 Staterooms.
There are x400 Low Berths. The low berths are tended by the vessel's medical staff, assisted by properly trained stewards.
|3.||Performance|| The vessel mounts a DeVoss-type Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-3 drive, and a Power Plant-3, giving performance of Jump-2, 3-G acceleration, and producing 300 Energy Points. The ship has an agility rating of 2 and an emergency agility of 3. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for one Jump-2 and gives the power plant 4 weeks duration.
|4.||Electronics||Adjacent to the bridge is a Model/3 Computer: the vessel has a backup Model/3 Computer.|
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Luxury Liner is:|
|7.||Defenses|| The hull is unarmored.
The vessel is not fitted with screens or other passive defensive systems.
|9.||Fuel Treatment||The vessel has internal fuel tankage of 2,300 dTons.|
|10.||Cost||The basic cost of the vessel is MCr7,194.407|
|11.||Construction Time|| 160 weeks (40 months) as standard.
|12.||Comments||Standard cargo capacity amounts to 850 dTons.|
The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra and separated by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a massive system of calibration Points. Those few academics within Charted Space who have heard of the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.
These vessels are very rarely encountered outside of the Distant Fringe region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.
The design is representative and a large number of variants exist, particularly with regard to the allotted weapons systems, onboard electronics, and the fit out of internal spaces. Luxury Liners generally follow predetermined routes, often with extended layovers at locations to allow tourism and sightseeing.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
A number of companies manufacture ships equivalent to the Treader class.
They vary in hull shape and internal layout but all share the same basic design and all have very similar capabilities and performance characteristics.
- Each variant class is named by the company that produces it: these organizations generally draw on traditional naming protocols. It is not uncommon for a historical class name to be reused.
- Individual vessels within a class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes but traditionally are named by their owners. This is considered a serious affair and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
