Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
Vessel Peculiarities: The vessel has a strange and spooky tendency to creak while in jumpspace. This makes many crews quite jumpy. No amount of re-engineering, grav plates, or structural dampering has ever eliminated this quirk. Some more superstitious crew refuse to serve on a vessel of this class because of it, even though repeated studies have shown that there is no correlation between the creaking and equipment failure. 
Class Naming Practice/s: The Argu is a famed plant-like organism from Vland and thus was this vessel named. The Clii quality of argu is the highest quality and Terrans often noted how often Vilani crew quickly signed up to transport the stuff and skimmed a little off the top. Argu can be used in a variety of ways, eaten, used as a seasoning, smoked, used as incense, etc. Terrans often joked that it was like spam and eggs. Clii Argu's tend to be named after valued foodstuffs following this tradition.
