The Roca Maestro class Modular Ore Hauler is a industrial mining spaceship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 4-G and J-0 performance with a unstreamlined cylinder hull.

  • It carries light defensive armament, mining lasers, and a defensive suite.
  • It ordinarily carries a large complement of subcraft and drones.
  • It has a 100 sophont crew and no marines.

The Roca Maestro class Modular Ore Hauler is a modular ship of remarkable flexibility and re-purpose-able modularity. It can be operated as small as a 100-ton mining vessel or expanded to a "tinker toy" like network of fifty or more modules displacing 2,500 tons or more. The core of the system is the Tomar class Industrial Mining Launch and the 15-ton ore pod. The vessels are almost always equipped as non-jump system ships, but jump drive modules could be added to the mining system if desired. It's usually far more economical to keep mining operations in-system with a jump capable, ore-refining Mining Vessel doing the heavy work. Partiuclarly rich operations might justify the use of a Mining Platform, local base, or a dedicated space station.
