The Fast Drug Berth is an advancement of the Steerage Berth concept using Fast Drugs.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is the same as the Steerage Berth with the passengers under Fast Drug to prevent psychological side effects. Up till TL-12, the passenger will be under the influence of the drug for 60 days, after TL-12 the antidote is available and the the effects can be stopped at end of passage. Cost drops for long passages, the base of Cr2,900 is for the drugs required (60 days or fraction thereof) and Cr233 per week life support. [1]

While Fast Drug slows the metabolism of the passenger, it may not affect germs in the air, thus still having possibility of becoming a plague ship with the resulting port restrictions. Muscle strain and bone injuries are possible, as holding/lifting anything will be 60 times longer than expected and fast drug does not increase endurance. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Steerage has a long history of mental and psychological strain on passengers, use of Fast Drug is an attempt to reduce that strain.
