Zdebr Freighter

design by Peter Gray

The Zdebr is the Zhodani equivalent to the old Imperial Fat Trader. While the Consulate is officially a socialist society, it encourages small entrepenuerial ventures as a means of rechanneling frustration. Most Zdebrs are found in service along the Consulate's frontier regions, and thousands serve along the Regency-Consulate interface. Unlike most Zhodani civilian designs the class is fitted with light armament to deter piracy. The ships boat crew doubles as stewards and additional service personnel, but normally the ship does not carry high passengers. The version below is a variant that maximises endurance; other variants add low berths, or delete passenger space in favor of more cargo.
