Starship:

  • Speed of Travel

  • Description (Specifications)[edit]

    General Overview[edit]

    Each ship has a detailed description. The ship's tonnage is noted in "dTons", a contraction of Displacement Tons.

    • Starships within the Distant Fringe utilize DeVoss-type jump drives, limited to a performance of jump-2 (the so-called Jump-2 Barrier).
    • Some designs are noted as having a Secure Locker. This space can be secured with lockable bulkhead doors and has a controlled internal environment. It is, in all respects, usable as cargo storage.

    Vessel Cost[edit]

    The listed base cost for a ship represents the price for an individually constructed vessel of that type. The ship must be constructed in the appropriate type of shipyard at the appropriate TL. The base cost reflects the fees and costs associated with retooling the yard facilities and all of the associated planning, administrative and logistic processes.

    • The listed base cost of a vessel includes the undiscounted base cost of any subcraft that it carries.
    • The listed discounted cost also includes the discounted cost of any subcraft inherent in the design.
