The Last Line class Fleet Courier is a communications starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a fully streamlined saucer structure with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness ocean refueling. The maneuver drives develop 4G acceleration with a 4 agility rating. The ship is capable of Jump-2, and carries enough internal fuel for a Jump-2 with a Jump-1 reserve. They are fitted with 28 days of extra power plant fuel and well as another Jump-2 drop tank for increased range when crossing rift zones. It carries a model/2 fib ship computer adjacent to the main bridge. They use this class to reconnaissance and fleet communication while on patrol amid their seven star systems.

It is armed with a triple missile turret and has enough gunners, so that it can track and engage three different targets in a dog fight.

The fleet deploys these in pairs to move on the two available 12,800 ton Jesel class Fleet Tenders. This allows the couriers to scout farther from the fleet.
