:HEADER Express Courier Dryad X-AB04, TL 13, 100 tons, MCr 56.7
 
 :COMMENTS
Constructed using the 100 ton hull, the express boat is fitted with drives producing jump-4, and nothing else. There is no power plant or maneuver drive installation. Fuel tankage is sufficient for one jump. The cramped bridge is complemented by a Model/4 computer. The ship has two staterooms; one is necessary for the single crew member, while the other can carry a passenger. More often, the pilot uses the second room for additional living space. There is a one ton cargo bay which is occasionally used to carry vital cargo such as vaccines or sophisticated repair parts.
