The Last Armada class Personnel Transport is an Auxiliary.
The Personnel Transport is a historical design produced in the Terran Confederation during the early 22nd century. These ships fled the Destruction of Terra at the hands of the Vilani Imperium in 2147AD, forming a part of the Last Armada and carrying with them the last remnants of Terran culture and independence. The class were extremely sturdy and reliable and endured more than a century of spaceflight. They ultimately found and settled the Demon Cluster, the Distant Fringe.
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 Personnel Transport is constructed using a 12,000 Ton hull built in a generally Conical configuration. The hull is fully streamlined, giving fair atmospheric performance that is further enhanced by its onboard gravitic systems.
|2.||Crew|| 129 personnel.
|3.||Performance|| The vessel mounts a Jump-2 drive, a Maneuver-1 drive, and a Power Plant-2, giving performance of Jump-2 and 1-G acceleration. The ship has an agility rating of 1. The internal fuel tankage is sufficient for two consecutive Jump-2s 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.
|6.||Armament||The normal weapons fit-out for a Personnel Transport is:|
|7.||Defenses||The hull is unarmored.|

History / Background
Personnel Transports were constructed in large numbers at Terran-controlled shipyards throughout the Interstellar Wars period. It was an Auxiliary vessel and was one of the more common examples of large ship acquired by the Expedition. This class of ship is historical – no extant examples are known to exist. In addition to carrying passengers, some examples of the class also served as recreational venues (in some sources being referred to as "shore leave ships"). Such vessels were almost entirely given over to entertainment and leisure facilities, providing a vital break from the routine of Armada duties.
