The Skeid is a variant of the Snekkja that focuses more on initial sublight speed and jump range, at the cost of hold size and power availability. The Skeid has a high 1,000 ZWs shield grid, high 5,000 GPa hull strength and initial sublight speed of 0.05 LYs per minute. It has four bays to dock friendlies and ten spaces for rooms, the hold size is still a respectable 8,000 Mgs and its jump range is the best of any generational ship of 15 LYs. It still features the same perk as the Snekkja allowing it to travel faster the longer it travels and attract and settle colonists as required.
