The Caccil class Merchant is a TL–13 Merchant Vessel.

Description[edit]

The Caccil class Merchant is one of the fabled iceships of the Aakho. It is built from ice asteroids with drives, power plant, and equipment built into them. Caccil's hulls are somewhat resistant to laser fire.

| Tonnage / Hull | 100,000 tons (variable). Unstreamlined Planetoid Hull. Icey asteroid origin.

  • The ship can easily gain or lose ice mass leading to constantly changing, variable size and displacement.

History & Background[edit]

Caccils are popular with smugglers who can obtain them due to their mutable cargo holds that can be enlarged, shrunk, or sealed off from the main ship. The drawback for Caccil is that they cannot approach too far into a system without losing some of their hull and have to relay upon more traditionally built metal shuttles for cargo pickup & delivery.
