X-Range Starship: A designation applied to starships within the Distant Fringe region: vessels fitted with drop-tanks or collapsible fuel tanks in order to increase their operational range.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Starships are limited by the performance of DeVoss-type jump drives - the so-called Jump-2 Barrier.

Ships equipped with temporary additional fuel tankage are referred to as being "X-Range", an abbreviation for "Extended Range Vessels". Most classes of military scouts are designed this way.
