Starships are designed with the Classic Traveller format, using High Guard Shipyard v1.13 written by Andrea Vallance.

The Zoe Barrett class Trader is a mercantile starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Zoe Barrett class is a popular design used for commercial operations in the Sena Subsector of the Halcyon Sector. They are generally used to service smaller feeder routes and worlds away from the main Star Lanes. They are expensive to own and operate: the trader's voluminous fuel capacity, necessary for long-range operations, precludes large cargo holds and contributes to their higher cost per ton. A number of examples have been converted into passenger liners.

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]
No. Category Remarks
1. Tonnage / Hull The Zoe Barrett is designed around a 900 dTon fully streamlined saucer hull.
2. Crew The vessel requires 13 crew: pilot, navigator, 7x engineers, medic, and 3x gunners/cargo stevedores.
3. Performance The class is a long-range design: it carries enough internal fuel for two consecutive Jump-2s and has sufficient additional capacity to run the power plant for 4 weeks. The vessel is capable of 4-G constant acceleration and has an Agility rating of 2.
4. Electronics The design is fitted with a military grade model 6 computer adjacent to the bridge. This provides excellent fire control abilities but it lacks the ruggedized fiber optic back ups, common on NFF vessels.

  • x4 triple missile turrets, typically grouped into a single battery
