Default Xboat-20

Express Courier X-AB20 Hop Xboat MCr33.6

Owner: Post-Imperial

Using a 100-ton, TL20 hull, the HX-Class Express Courier mounts maneuver drive-A, hop drive-A, and power plant-A, giving a performance of 2G acceleration and Hop-2. Fuel tankage supports one month of operations and up to three jumps at Hop-2. Attached to the bridge is a Computer Model/2 std. There are 4 staterooms, 1 crew niche, and no low berths. The ship has 20 tons of cargo space. The ship has a braced hull.

The ship has 1 crew, and can carry 4 passengers. The ship's computer typically operates as the pilot/astrogator and engineer, while the crewperson is typically the steward and freightmaster.

The HX is part of a Hop-2 Express Boat network, delivering data up to 20 parsecs away, per day. The ship qualifies as a packet, but for historical and nostalgic reasons retains the classification express courier.

Crew comfort: +2
Passenger demand: +3
