The TC4 Attaray class Schooner is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The vessel has a fully streamlined flattened sphere structure hull. It is fitted with fuel scoops and fuel purification plant allowing it to perform wilderness ocean refueling.

Naval engineers complain that the out-sized fusion power plant is the reason the additional engineering mate is required, to "watch gauges for deuterium-tritium decay rates and check reactor pressures." The abundant power makes the vessel conspicuous to passive sensors, but allows agility, computer and six pulse lasers to all operate at the same time. Beam lasers were expected, some suspect embezzlement, some think a shortage shifted the available beam laser supplies to the larger ships in the fleet.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The TC4 Attaray class Schooner serves with the Trooles Confederation. Examples of the class can be encountered throughout the coreward parts of Theta Borealis Sector.

Historically, this TC4 Attaray class Schooner design was used for slaving, privateering, blockade running, and to support surface safari activities. Schooners were also popular among pirates noted for their range and wilderness refueling abilities. They can operate around planets and in gravity wells. Popular for their speed and agility. They can also land at ports too small for major fleet combatants such as frigates and trade galleons. They still hold enough weaponry to intimidate merchant vessels into submission.

Schooners first evolved from a variety of small merchant vessels used for trade routes and as pleasure yachts built for wealthy merchants. Navies started using the design as a light combatant, which lowered the speed and ease of handling, in favor of light hull plating armor. Schooners were immediately popular with colonial traders and privateers.
