An ancient design common near the end of the Rule of Man. Using a streamlined, lightly armored saucer configuration 200 ton hull, the Rule of Man Corvette is a typical small warship used on patrol, military, and anti-corsair missions. This lot of hulls were purchased in bulk from a bankrupt Vilani shipbuilder whose plans for merchant vessels were cancelled. The military re-purposed the hulls into a minor combatant. It mounts jump 2 drives and 4 G maneuver drives. Fuel tankage for 52 ton supports the power plant and allows one jump-2. Adjacent to the bridge is a model/5 fib computer. There are four staterooms with double occupancy. There are a pair of forward mounted, double plasma gun turrets. Each plasma gun fires as its own battery to allow four targets to be engaged at the same time. The limitation is that they are only suitable for point defense work versus fighters or missiles and at short range combat There is a small custom 12 ton life boat, which was usually fitted with a triple missile battery. Smarter commanders would launch this "lifeboat" and use its missiles as some form of long range fire.

Low ranking officers would often draw this as their first command. It is a very limited warship. There are no ship's troops or marines for boarding or customs inspections. The cargo capacity is 3 tons. The corvette requires a crew of eight.
