Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a passenger vessel with 1-G and J-4 performance with a streamlined Cylinder hull.

The Pride of Vland class Long Liner is the Tukera long-liner, the main-route passenger transport serving much of the Imperium. The Tukera long-liner is a proprietary Tukera Lines design, and is operated on many of Tukera's routes as a standard passenger liner. Build sturdily and intended to last in service for decades, the long-liner maintains a standard of quality service that other lines try to match.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In merchant service, the single greatest threat to a ship is hijacking. Ships themselves are extremely valuable and extremely mobile. As a result, this sort of ship is designed to foil hijackings. The crew quarters, the drive rooms, and the bridge are all behind solid bulkheads, accessible through a limited number of portals. These accesses can be guarded by the crew in the course of their normal activities, with backup safeguards operated by the ship's computer.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]
