Description (Specifications)[edit]

Using an 800-ton hull, the Hiver Embassy Ship is a large transport vessel intended to carry Hiver embassies between worlds. It mounts jump drive-H, maneuver drive-D, and power plant-H, giving performance of Jump-2 and 1 G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 180 tons supports the power plant and one Jump-2. Adjacent to the bridge is a ship computer Model/2. There are 60 staterooms and no low berths. The ship has two hardpoints and two tons allocated to fire control. No turrets or weapons are initially installed. There is one ship's vehicle: a 95-ton shuttle. Cargo capacity is 184 tons. The hull is not streamlined.

The Hiver Embassy Ship requires a crew of 12: pilot, navigator, three engineers, medic, and six stewards. A steward operates the shuttle. The ship can carry 48 passengers. The ship is valued at MCr311.7 and takes 28 months to build.

Hiver Liners are often built to the same pattern, or are converted surplus Embassy Ships.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

When the Hivers moved out into the stars and first established their federation, they realized that one responsibility of their government would be further development of the many worlds they found, and exploitation of the resources they discovered. The Federation Development Agency was given this task. To support this the Agency developed the Hiver Embassy Ship with the most common type being the Type HE class Embassy Ship.
