This craft represents a typical Hiver “Meet and Greet” or “Handshake Ceremony” embassy ship. It is designed to hold 5 “ambassadors” and their staff, in addition to their bodyguard detachment of Ithilkur Marines. They have often used Human guards from Human population planets in the Federation when the embassy needs to travel to Imperial space. The gunnery crew acts as part of the bodyguard when they are not on space duty.
The length of deployment that a “handshake” embassy goes on demands a great deal of support. The ship is outfitted with engineering, vehicle, research, and medical facilities not often found on a ship of this size to provide that same support.
With its large number of small craft the ship allows each “ambassador” to perform individual missions without stranding their fellow “ambassadors” without transportation.
Long deployments also demand lots of personal space, which the ship is well equipped for. There are also meeting rooms and a small audience hall in the accommodations allocated to the ship.
The cargo deck allows the ship to carry many spares, fine art goods, small trade goods, as well as goodwill presents to the systems visited.
With its extensive databanks and sophisticated computer systems, the ship has a wealth of Federation cultural, scientific, political and technical data that it shares with the systems it visits. The long-range sensors also allow it to perform “scientific data gathering” as it travels through Federation space and beyond.
The weapons fittings are primarily defensive in nature, meant to keep the embassy ship undamaged so it can flee to a sheltered part of a star system, or jump out of danger. Given the importance of the embassy missions, the Embassy ship is usually escorted by 2-3 smaller craft. These will usually be one 100-200 ton scout type ship for advanced liaison duties, one 200-400 ton tender/trade ship with a cargo only design that carries additional supplies and trade goods, and one 400-600 ton Escort, similar to Imperial Type T or Gazelle class ships. All of the ships mount defensive weapons, while the dedicated escort will often be heavily armed for its displacement.
