The Convoy Freighter is designed as a bulk freighter capable of bringing massive amounts of goods between systems. Three types of ‘modules’ make up the Convoy and are the reason for it’s name. The ship is made up of a Command Section, Cargo Section(s), and a Drive Section. Each of these is connected by a link section. Up to four Cargo sections can be placed between the Command and Drive sections.

The Command Section includes both the bridge and the living quarters and looks like a long spire with housing ‘nubs’ sprouting from it, with the Bridge at the tip.

The Cargo Sections are not much more than large boxes capable of holding millions of tons of cargo. A central corridor provides access through the Cargo Section.

The Drive section is an engineering deck, access tunnels, fuel containers, and The massive fusion torch drives. It also has four industrial style docking ports that can lock onto most stations, hold a shuttle, or link to another large vehicle.
