The Wobbegong class Seeker is a prospecting starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Many small ships have been converted from their standard models to create mining ships but the Wobbegong class was - in theory - designed from scratch. In reality, the limitations of a 100 dton hull and a realisation that re-using a standard hull would much reduce costs, led to its final design closely resembling other Type J's such as those based on the Suleiiman class Scout/Courier. The Wobbegong does have some refinements, having a relatively spacious dedicated EVA airlock and a very compact engineering section (by moving the smaller Jump drive to beneath the main engineering deck). The design is slightly more costly than some competitors, but the money has been well spent on heavily- tested, reliable systems, giving this class an enviably good safety record. To give maximum possible ore bay space, the normal fuel tankage only allows a single Jump-1; for longer distances one or more demountable tanks must be installed in the ore bay(s). Balancing this are the 3G manoeuvre drives, allowing the ship to move more quickly than most competitors between prospecting sites within a system.
