Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard Shipyard v1.13 written by Andrea Vallance.

The Basil class Merchant is a Free Trader that is a modified Type A design.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It has an upgraded maneuver drive (to allow take off and landing on most planets while loaded), an armament package, and a reduced accommodation set. Two dual turrets are installed, one with two beam lasers, the other with a missile rack and a sandcaster. No dedicated missile magazine has been provided, so missiles must be carried in the cargo hold. Firing both lasers requires the full power ordinarily used for the maneuver drives and the inertial compensators.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Basil is fairly typical of craft being built during the current Imperial difficulties.
