Sundowner-Class Free Trader

design by Lewis Roberts

Pre-Collapse: The Sundowner-Class Free Trader was a common sight in the Solomani Confederation. It was the standard tramp freighter hauling freight on the fringes and to worlds far off the beaten path. It carried freight and passengers between the various member states, and between individual worlds.

New Era: Four of these craft are known to exist in RC space, all four are owned by Transstar; the Hokka, der Krieger, the Zauberer, and the Skakac. Transstar was able to store these ships through the collapse, and once contact was made with the Hiver, they were able to buy new parts, and start flying them again. To prevent Virus from taking over, the controls were redone, and an additional engineer is stationed aboard. To make room for the extra workstation, the engineer's fresher and storage closet were converted into workspace. The new workspace isn't very pretty, and the junior engineer on board is assigned to the "Head station."

Solomani Space: Ships of this class were found throughout Confederation space, and many are sure to survive in places like the Near Bootes Confederation, the Terran Republic, and the League of Dingir. See PERI for more details on these Empires. The Terran Republic and the League of Dingir are listed under Children of Earth.
