    Supraclass Roles[edit]

    Utility Ships typically serve the following roles:

    Civilian Largecraft & Bigcraft:

    Type T Tanker Supraclass Archetypes
    Archetype Type Code/s Exemplar Remarks
    Tanker TF Regent class Station Tanker Tankers are specially designed to haul cargoes of either liquid or gas. Many are specially designed and can not take alternate types of cargo. For example, a hydrogen carrier can not normally be used to transport ammonia. There are some specialized tankers where entire storage modules are swapped out, not unlike bulk cargo carriers, but these are more the exception than the rule.
    • T = Tanker
    • F = Fuel

    Civilian Smallcraft:

    Type UF Fueling Smallcraft Supraclass Archetypes
    Archetype Type Code/s Exemplar Remarks
    Fuel Shuttle UF Bubble class Fuel Cutter Fuel shuttles or lighters are smallcraft that perform a variety of fuel-purposed missions although the most common act to perform wilderness refueling tasks and then ferry fuel back to a largecraft mothership. Others refine fuel, carry it around like miniature tankers, or otherwise do useful things. They also have bigcraft cousins.
