Empress Marava Far Trader

design by Lewis Roberts

The Empres Marava class of far traders is ubiquitous through out the Imperium, in the 1100s. After the collapse, many examples of these were left throughout Imperial space. Many of these quickly fell into disrepair as spare parts became harder and harder to aquire. Even with this many Free Traders manage to keep their Marvas going. For more information see any of the write ups that have appeared in the first three versions of Traveller.

This ship was designed with SSDS.
