Default Ship Summary Card

Given a ship summary, I was thinking maybe a ship card could encapsulate a lot of this as an easy reference -- easier than reading the text anyway.

A ship card as an operational summary, rather than a ship design sheet.

Anyone else had these sorts of thoughts?

An example of an adequate text summary:

Scout/Courier (S-AL22) TL15, MCr 62.

Using a 100-ton hull, the scout/courier is intended for exploration, survey, and courier duties, with many in service throughout known space. It mounts drives giving it jump-2 and 2-G acceleration. Fuel tankage of 18 tons supports one jump-2 (8 tons per parsec) and one month of operations (2 tons). TL15 models have a Collector-2 installed which can also power the jump drive. Installed on its bridge is a computer Model/1bis and attack-range sensors. Detached duty versions have an open lounge where survey sensors would typically go.

There are four staterooms and one hardpoint; installed on the hardpoint is one double turret beam laser. There is one ship's vehicle: an enclosed air/raft. Cargo capacity is 3 tons; there is an additional 1-ton mail vault installed. The hull has scoops, bins, and intakes with purification plants for wilderness refueling. The ship can land on uneven terrain and is submersible.

The Scout, by its nature, is built as a one-person operation: a single crew can handle all operations, albeit inefficiently. On the other hand, the Scout can carry three non-commercial passengers (comfort=-1), or up to seven with double occupancy (comfort=-3).

The official class name is Sulieman, after the Ottoman emperor with a reputation for strategy and diplomacy, but many scouts prefer "Murphy-class", as a reference to Murphy's Law.

Ex-Scouts may obtain a Scout/Courier for only 1 Ship Share.
