History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Caccils are popular with smugglers who can obtain them due to their mutable cargo holds that can be enlarged, shrunk, or sealed off from the main ship. The drawback for Caccil is that they cannot approach too far into a system without losing some of their hull and have to relay upon more traditionally built metal shuttles for cargo pickup & delivery.
