To keep the crew size small, this ship uses two maneuver drives: a 1G fusion rocket for use outside of atmosphere, and a small 0.05G HEPlaR system which in conjunction with the contragrav is used for takeoffs and landings with an approximate 0.04G performance in an effectively 0.01G gravity field. The fusion rocket is used to kill most of the ship's vector before the landing system is activated. The hull is only stressed for 1G, but the drives are rated for normal thrust figures (FRkt == 60000 TT; HEPlaR == 3000 TT), so the HEPlaR will in actuality get about twice better than rated performance in most cases.
Peak power output is held down to 1224 MW. If the fusion rocket is in operation, the power plant is throttled back and engineering crew are tranferred to rocket operation.
The K'kree have the technical capability to build better ships than this, but they have a conservative approach to technology. This ship is fairly sophisticated for K'kree space. (This suggests that many civilian K'kree vessels with archaic computers will survive the TNE virus.)
This design illustrates some K'kree difficulties with interstellar travel. The ship above is roughly the equivalent to a K'kree Far Trader, and it is possibly cramped by civilian K'kree standards. It's about the smallest civilian K'kree starship size possible.

For each K'kreer! not carried, 672 cubic meters of cargo may be carried nstead. Presumably, the open quarters have some sort of concealed "blast door" system in the ceiling or floor to seal off small portions of the ship if the hull is somehow breached.
