History and background
Shurkig is famed for its commercial shipyards and the production of its (state-of-the-art) TL–15 vessels. All the standard designs (and many more besides) are built under license. They are all of excellent quality, constructed to the highest standards. There is a continuous backlog of orders, despite charging premium prices.
The yards are also a source of quality services; repairs, refits, spares and second-hand vessels. A consortium of many of the larger, well-established starship manufacturers on Shurkig are actively undertaking research in the development and implementation of TL–16 systems for commercial ships using technology imported from Ushra (Dagudashaag 1016).
