The Vey class Troop Transport is an auxiliary warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is an unarmored fully streamlined conical structure with fuel scoops and on board fuel purification for wilderness ocean refueling. The ship is capable of Jump-2, and carries enough internal fuel for a Jump-2 with a Jump-1 reserve. They are fitted with 28 days of extra power plant fuel and well as another Jump-2 drop tank for increased range when crossing rift zones. The maneuver drives develop 4G acceleration with a 2-Agility rating. It carries a Model/5 fib ship computer adjacent to the main bridge.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Built locally at Jesel for the The Last Line, which is the youngest state within the Distant Fringe, located in the coreward/spinward quadrant of Halcyon Sector.

Distant Fringe Vessels[edit]

The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.[3]

Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.[4]
