Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard.

The Dakaar class Merchant Transport is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Dakaar class freighters are based upon a design first developed by Starstream Enterprises on Caledon (Reaver's Deep 1815). They are a popular merchant vessel for long-range exploratory trade in the Reavers' Deep. The starships have excellent range and sufficient cargo capacity for profitable operations among the various independent worlds of the Deep. Scorned as undergunned by some safety conscious merchants, they are nonetheless sturdy workhorses of the Caledonian merchant marine.
