Tramp Class Scout/Trader

design by Franklin W. Cain


In the Reformation Coalition, relic TL-15 Scout/Couriers are relatively plentiful (compared to other starships). As such, the RC came up with the Multi-Mission Scout (a modified Scout with a 20-ton module in its belly). However, the RC started phasing these out in favor of the Victrix-class Multi-Mission Sloops. One might wonder what is to be done with these surplus Scouts. One use is to modify them for other uses.

All of these Scouts have a Tech Level of "12/15." This is because the TL-15 (bonded superdense) hull was emptied of its TL-15 components, and refilled with TL-12 components. The salvagable TL-15 components were then used in more important RC Navy vessels.

It is intended that these ships can be used in the character generation procedure, where a modified scout ship is called for in the trader column.
