Adjacent to the bridge is a model/1 computer. There are four staterooms and one emergency low berth. The ship has two hardpoints and two tons allocated to fire control. Installed on the hardpoints are two single turrets: Each mounts one pulse laser. The weaponry is primarily used for mining operations. There is one ship's vehicle: A ship's boat. Cargo capacity (...primarily for ore) is 65.0 tons. The hull is not streamlined.
