This is my first attempt to design a T20 starship. It is based on a ship I designed for TNE's FF&S a few years ago.


- Pacifica Class Light Freighter
Designed by: Oceanus Shipyards (William Wilson, a.k.a. Grendel T. Troll)

200-ton Hull (Needle/Wedge) - Streamlined
AC: 13 (13 vs. Meson Guns) AR: 2 (TL-12) SI: 115 Initiative: 1
Starship Size: Medium Cost: 114.071 MCr (142.589 MCr without discount)
Model/3 Fib Computer Avionics: Less than 600-ton Sensors: Medium Range Communications: Short Range (Maser)
Cargo: 46.6-tons
Annual Maintenance = 11.407 KCr (5.704 KCr if routinely maintained)
Routine Maintenance = 2.852 KCr/Month (28.518 KCr per year)

Jump-2 (enough fuel for 1x Jump-2)
Acceleration: 2-G Agility: 1
Power Plant: TL-12 Fusion (11 EP output, enough fuel for 4 weeks)
Fuel Scoops, Fuel Purification Plant (TL-12, 8hrs per 200 tons of fuel)
Atmospheric Speeds: NOE = 1,175kph Cruising = 3,525kph Maximum = 4,700kph

Hardpoints: 2
1x Triple Beam Laser Turret TL-12, +3 To Hit, 3d8 (20/x1), Range: 30,000km
1x Barbette Pulse Laser Turret TL-12, +1 To Hit, 1d10 (19/x2), Range: 45,000km

Ship's Vehicles:
1x 5-ton vehicle hangar

Accomodations & Fittings:
3x Double Occupancy Stateroom (6 People)
1x Single Occupancy Small Cabin (1 People)
1x Standalone Fresher
2x Airlocks

Crew Details:
1x Pilot
1x Astrogator
1x Engineer
1x Medic
2x Gunner

Description: The Pacifica Class Light Freighter is a rather heavily-armed 200-dTon TL-12 merchant vessel. The ship was designed by popular demand for Free Traders who travel in the Wilds on a regular basis. It doubles as an escort vessel for ships not so armed. The ship sacrifices its passenger-carrying capabilities for increased powerplant output. Because it is designed with a maximum Tech Level of 12, however, its cargo bay is barely adequate for freight hauling because of this. Most traders who purchase this kind of vessel, however, are more into scavenging valuable relics from the former 3rd Imperium and Julian Protectorate as well as speculative cargo runs.

This design first rolled off the Oceanus Shipyard in the former Imp year 1199. Asimikigir's economy has substantually improved since then, and it looks like the world's Tech Level will increase to 13 by next year (1216). Oceanus plans to upgrade all of its ship designs as soon as its shipyards are accomadating to the new technology (mainly smaller fusion powerplants and increased weapon performance). So far, the design is farily popular, considerably more than the Atlantica Class Free Trader.


Hope this helps!
