The Hnneshant class Trade Boat is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The parochialism of the Vargr is typified by the traditional designs handed down within family groups for various machinery, including starships - indeed, experienced starfarers can tell which phylum a crew belongs to merely from the appearance of their ship. [1]

The wildly varying design styles make it difficult to select which one it might be called typical; in these circumstances, the author has chosen this Hnneshant Phylum design on the basis of their frequent visits to Imperial trading stations. The Hnneshant are 'Assured' Vargr, that is a trade and non-aggression pact exists between the Imperium and the phylum's Leading Council. [2]

Notable differences between the Imperial Free Trader are the general lack of amenities, a mania for privacy in individual staterooms and workstations, and a rather haphazard approach to ship layouts. The Tradeboat is, however, an efficient design in its own way. [3]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Hnneshant Phylum have full construction capability, thus tradeboats are built by the phylum rather than contracted out. As this is a traditional design it is difficult to tell the age at a glance - only the use of the materials and detail improvements will reveal this. [6]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Vargr ships from Hnneshant Phylum do not sue the name/number identity system. Instead vessels carry phylum emblems and are usually known by their master's name: Baralrl's Trader, Arlandr's Trader, and so on. [7]
