The Soho class Light Freighter is a civilian mercantile starship.

Description[edit]

The Soho-class is a variant of a design that dates back to the Long Night. Well armed by merchant ship standards, it's barbette and turret can be controlled from the master fire director on the bridge.

Meant as a cargo hauler capable of light escort duty, not a people mover, the Soho lacks the large number of passenger staterooms found on the typical far trader. The crew can double up in the existing staterooms, increasing the possible number of passengers to ten.

History & Background[edit]

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Most of the ships in this class by using a name of a precious gem or mineral and attaching the name Soho. The first five Sohos were called Ruby Soho, Diamond Soho, Jade Soho, Emerald Soho, and Sapphire Soho.
