The Fanzhienz class Far Trader is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Using a 200 ton hull, the far trader is capable of 1-G acceleration and jump-2. Fuel tankage is 50 tons and the ship incorporates fuel scoops for gas giant skimming. The bridge is standard and has a computer Model/1-bis installed. Two tons of fire control support the ship's two turrets. The ship has ten staterooms (three for the crew, seven for the passengers) and four low berths. A single air/raft is carried for various ship duties. The ship itself is streamlined for atmospheric landings. Cargo capacity is 61 tons.

The far trader costs MCr 66.175 to construct. The price includes architect's fees and design plan costs, but does not include weaponry added later.

Interior Details: The Zhodani far trader has the needle style lines of most Zhodani ship designs, though the needs of freight carriage dictate a broader form . The bridge is located forward; just aft of this is a lounge used by crew and passengers. The remainder of the upper deck is taken up by staterooms and engineering, with the lower deck holding the cargo area and the air/raft in a fitted hull compartment.

Fuel is stored in the after part of the lower deck,and in the fins and other surfaces above the main deck.

Weaponry: The Zodani far trader is often armed with triple missile turrets, or, alternatively, with two missiles and one sandcaster apiece .

Air/Raft : The air/raft is a standard, open-top model, similar to those found in the Imperium.
