History

The ‘Bus’ Freighter is one of the first small freighter designs, often used as couriers before the Colony Rebellion on top of carrying smaller freight loads. Some were pressed into service for the Colonies as scouts, however most of them during the period were rivals of the Midnight Runner Transport running supplies passed UEG blockades. Usually by meeting in space with rebel vessels rather than trying to run any blockades themselves. Though they were also occasionally used to carry a small number of fighters or even shuttles between systems in the early days of the rebellion. Afterwards they were often used to transport small high value goods.

Possibly it’s most unusual features are it’s above average commercial grade sensors and it’s transfer ability. It has six cargo hatches on each side of the ship as well as a pair of basic docking ports. This provides a very high degree of ability to move cargo between itself and other ships in space or stations. It’s also highly useful in case of critical damage. It also has a fuel probe on the very front, which allows it to refuel without even having to dock as long as a suitable vessel to match up to is available.
