Liners are a commercial or mercantile spacecraft and starcraft. Some shipping companies refer to themselves as "lines" and their ships, which often operate over set routes according to established schedules, as "liners".

  • Description (Specifications)[edit]

    A Liner is a civilian commercial ship designed for cargo and passenger transport. Liners are usually assigned a Hull Classification of "M". They fill the smallest possible economic niche where regular scheduled freight can regularly be found profitable. Nevertheless, many world-states find it worthwhile to subsidize such trade to ensure its reliability and avoid the vagaries of the interstellar economy.

    NOTES: While standards exist, ship naming standards evolve with time and over tech epochs. Class naming comments are only generalizations and many exceptions exist. Trade is heavily affected by local regulations, the rule of law, and local security conditions. WCS-class vessels are not ordinarily used for merchant missions as they are too large and expensive.

    Strategy & Tactics (Doctrine)[edit]

    Subsidized Liners are commercial or mercantile starcraft. They typically cover low to medium volume trade routes with medium risk speculation. Such routes are key to pocket empires as needed services so they are often subsidized to encourage market growth. They are not intended for military use and have little recourse other than to flee for their lives if confronted by corsair vessels or other hostiles. [1]

    These vessels typically serve the following archetypal roles:

    R-class Liner Supraclass Archetypes
    Archetype Type Code/s Exemplar Remarks
    Far Liner R2 Petty class Subsidized Merchant Built to range longer endurance, farther routes.
    • R2 = Regular at J-2
    Fast Liner R3 Kolomyia class Fast Liner None
    • R3 = Regular at J-3 or higher
    Cargo Liner /
    Cargo Cruiser
    RC Jose Cadiz Royal Galleon class Cargo Carrier A starship primarily for transporting cargo freight subsidized by local government, often connecting developing or newly discovered areas.
    • C = Cargo
    Heavy Liner RH Vespir class Heavy Liner A Heavy Liner is a size-displacement category that includes vessels that weigh between 1,500 to 2,499 tons.
    • H = Heavy
    Clipper RI Aurora class Clipper A starship meant for speedy transport of passengers and high value goods.
    • I - clIpper
    Light Liner RL Lightning class Frontier Merchant A Light Liner is a size-displacement category that includes vessels that weigh between 100 to 999 tons.
    • L = Light
    Medium Liner RM Mora class Freighter A Medium Liner is a size-displacement category that includes vessels that weigh between 1,000 to 1,499 tons.
    • M = Medium
    Passenger Liner RP Bastien class Subsidized Liner A starship liner equipped for transporting passengers.
    • P = Passenger

    • L = Luxury

    RT Lord Somerset class Subsidized Liner Merchant Liners are general-purpose design starships, intended to carry both passengers and freight. They are larger than the Far Traders intended for cargoes over 200 tons and over a dozen passengers
    • T = Trade
    Nonstandard Trade Liner RTN Maorin Junker class Merchant None
    • N = Nonstandard
    Carrier Liner RV Ghost Galleon class Cargo Ship A liner specialized in carrying other starships, smallcraft, and other spaceworthy cargoes, usually via hangars or external mounts. In many cases, these external mounts give them the cargo capacity of a RM or RH despite their actual tonnage classifying them as RL, which helped prompt a separate code. They often rarely need to dock at a highport save to refuel. If refined fuel and cargo for their next destination are available near their breakout point, they may swap out cargo, refuel, and jump away, with speed and efficiency comparable to an Express Boat, blurring the border with the X class. The chief differences are, these vessels can also be used to rescue ships that have lost propulsion (up to their cargo capacity), and they can serve (most often for pirates or pocket empires) as makeshift carriers for small fighter squadrons.
    • V = carrier (see article for explanation)
    NOTES: There is semantic overlap between many of the classes and codes. Some codes organize by mission or capability, others by size and tonnage, and yet others by other characteristics.

    History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

    The government may subsidize larger commercial vessels (built on type 600 hulls or larger), primarily to assure consistent service to specific worlds. These subsidized merchants are generally assigned a specific route connecting from 2 to 12 worlds of varying characteristics. The route will generally be determined before a subsidized merchant is purchased, to allow tailored design features as may be necessary. When a subsidized merchant is ordered, the ship captain must make the 20% down payment, with the government assuming responsibility for the payments upon delivery, and taking 50% of the gross receipts of the ship while in service. The ship captain is responsible for all expenses and costs of operation. [2]

    Subsidized merchants are also subject to mobilization (...and use as auxiliaries) in the event of emergency or hostilities. At the end of 40 years, the vessel is completely paid off, and full title passes to the ship captain, but the vessel remains subject to mobilization in case of government need. [3]
