:HEADER Far Trader Empress Marava A2-BS12, TL 11, 200 tons, MCr 53.8
 
 :COMMENTS
Using a 200-ton TL 11 streamlined hull, the far trader ranges far and wide, and deals with every world it finds. Even amber zones and red zones are not considered off limits by its captains, provided there is profit to be made and the risk of being caught is slight. It has drives capable of jump-2 and 1-G acceleration. Fuel tankage supports jump-2 and one month of operation, and the ship incorporates fuel scoops and fuel intakes for wilderness refuelling. The bridge is standard and has a computer Model/1bis and a basic sensor suite. There are two hardpoints, but no weapons are mounted.

Like the free trader, the far trader is built around its cargo bay, in this case 64 tons. The ship has ten staterooms (three for the crew; seven for the passengers) and four low berths. A single air/raft is carried (in cargo) for various surface duties. The ship is streamlined, and can land on uneven terrain. The far trader requires a crew of three: pilot/astrogator, engineer, and steward.
