Free Trader Concept 1

Mechanical pencil on cartridge paper.

A design sketch for a generic free trader ship. While specific designs can be used on profitable bulk contracts, a free trader may need something theat can adapt. THis ship is basically a huge tug, all engines, a cockpit and living quarters. Cargo pods are simply plugged into the sides, allowing the ship to be quickly configured for a variety of loads. Imagine an 18-wheeler tractor that can pull a variety of trailers.
