Description[edit]

The model 904 is a more recent design. It started as a standard free trader and mutated from there. The hull was reinforced and armored platelets were added. A triple pulse laser turret and a double plasma gun turret were installed to protect it "against pirates". An oversized military grade power plant and maneuver drive intended for another project were shoved into the engine room and they spilled over into what was left of the rear cargo hold. The commercial low passenger deck now holds a frozen watch. The result is more gunboat than merchant.
