This category of vessels include civilian non-commercial starships and spacecraft above 100 tons.

Description[edit]

This starship category includes vessels whose primary purpose is non-commercial, usually for a local government service or in the service of an empire (i.e. They do not generate revenue from operation). These include civilian law enforcement (paramilitary), customs vessels, and non-military support vessels. Most, but not all, non-commercial vessels have jump capability. Corsairs (pirates) are an exception to the rule since they are clearly commercial in nature, but are not legal or sanctioned, in most cases. Sanctioned corsairs are usually called privateers.
