A huge starship built to carry massive loads. Conveyors are usually intended for colonization purposes, and usually displace more than a million tons. They are almost always built without maneuver drives, to increase the amount of internal space and cut down on unnecessary engineering crews. As such a conveyor relies upon carried craft for refueling and defense. In naval parlance these huge immobile craft are referred to as "mother pigs" or "beached whales". Jump Conveyors are the primary vessels of choice for the upcoming Askigaak Devolution, and experience in this operation is seen as a building block for re-expansion into the former Imperium.
