The Passenger Liner is a large commercial 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.
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 Passenger Liner is constructed using a 6,000 Ton hull built in a generally conical configuration. The hull is streamlined, giving good atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.|
|2.||Crew|| Total Crew Complement: x101
There are 200 Low Berths.
|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 180 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/4 Computer: the vessel has a backup Model/4 Computer.|
|5.||Hardpoints|| x60 hardpoints.
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Passenger 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 1,380 Tons.|
|10.||Cost||The basic cost of the vessel is MCr4,450.284|
|11.||Construction Time|| 123 weeks (29 months) as standard.
|12.||Comments||Standard cargo capacity amounts to 360 Tons.|
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. Passenger Liners generally follow predetermined routes, often with extended layovers at locations to allow tourism and sightseeing.
