Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Xebec class is an inexpensive, partially streamlined spherical hulled starship. There is a vast cargo hold for merchant trading and for extended scouting expeditions. Ship's vehicles include a pair of ten ton light fighters, two G-carriers, two air rafts, and two fifty ton cutters. The crew includes a pilot/captain, navigator, science/medical officer, six flight/vehicle crew, four engineers, and four gunners. It carries no marines. There are seventeen individual staterooms for crew comfort and to avoid crowding. The ship is equipped for wilderness refueling. Equipped with only a modest model/2 computer.
