The Type HL class Research Cruiser is a science starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Using a 600-ton hull, the Hivers Research Cruiser is a survey vessel used for exploration and as the primary base of operations for covert operations teams by the development agency. It mounts jump drive-J, maneuver drive-C, and power plant-J, giving a performance of jump-3 and 1 G acceleration. Fuel tankage for 210 tons supports the power plant and one jump-3. Adjacent to the bridge is a computer Model/3. There are 30 staterooms and no low berths. The ship has three hardpoints and three tons allocated for fire control. No turrets or weapons are initially installed. There are four ship's vehicles: two 40-ton pinnaces, a GCarrier, and an air/raft. Cargo capacity is 69 tons. The hull is streamlined.

The Hiver Research Cruiser requires a crew of six: pilot, navigator, three engineers, and a medic. The ship can carry twenty-four passengers (scientists, planetary development specialists, boat pilots, drivers, etc.) and no low passengers; more can be carried with double occupancy. The ship is valued at MCr308.9 and takes 24 months to build.
