Description (Specifications)[edit]

The ubiquitous embassy ship is the keystone of Federation homogeneity. The government is emphatic that an embassy ship stops at every settlement at least once a year. Many places have weekly visits. The embassies carried by these vessels travel around the worlds, calling in, exchanging data, checking cultural drift, taking discrete remedial action, shaking hands with local Hivers. setting down and taking up passengers. The embassy carries very complete surveillance and modeling equipment to assist its monitoring and adjusting roles.

The vessel is extremely comfortable, with lavish entertainment and conference facilities. It is unstreamlined and is never armed. A substantial escorting force - perhaps a small destroyer group - accompanies an embassy to the frontier.

Although all Federation citizens can, in theory, join an embassy, only Hivers routinely do so. Identical ships, designated liners (...further evidence of the true Hiver/other citizen relationship) carry other member species working in this field.

Commercial passenger transports are similar, but mount a Basic Bridge and gain 2.5 Hold spaces.
