History & Background[edit]

The free trader is an elementary interstellar merchant ship plying the space lanes carrying cargo and passengers. [1] The Type A becomes a popular cornerstone of interstellar commerce by the end of the TL:7-9 technological epoch in Vilani society. It is continually upgraded by the Vilani Bureaux.

Most of these craft are named after heroes from various literature sources, particularly from Terran or Vilani literary heroes.
