Shianjo Liner

design by Peter Gray

The Shianjo is the Consulates primary small liner. The class is used primarily on settled interior trade routes, and therefore lacks either armament or a fuel purification plant. The ship is not streamlined, and is utterly dependent upon established refueling facilities, which isn't a problem within its area of operation. The name of the class means "Smooth Roads" i.e. "Bon Voyage" in Zhodani. The ship is actually a common sight in Regency mercantile fleets in regions adjacent to the Zhodani Consulate, the result of continuing shortages of merchant vessels.

The ship's boat crew draws an engineer from the main ship. Otherwise it acts as additional crew when SB is aboard.
