Description (Specifications)[edit]

A Beagle Vessel is a specialized exploration vessel intended for long term, long duration data surveyal and collection.

Beagles tend to be larger ships, often bigger than an adventure class vessel. The smallest tend to be around 1,000 dTons, while the larger versions often mass several thousand dTons. They are meant for endurance and range, carrying considerable cargo stores, large numbers of survey probe drones, and enough personnel to conduct extensive scientific survey activity.

Strategy & Tactics (Doctrine)[edit]

Scout Vessels initially explore a star system, typically staying on station for a few days to a week or more. Survey Vessels follow conducting more comprehensive surveying and often staying on station for many weeks and possibly several months. The Beagles follow those two typically staying on station for not less than six months, and more likely more than a year or even several years.
