TextSpaced: An infinite and shared text-based universe.


The Trawler class of ship is a specialist in cargo recovery. Utilising practical recovery methods such as the use of a lobster claw, net catchers and robotic arms. Coupled with more modern recovery methods such as inertia beams and inertia wake pockets this compact ship is like a Swiss Army knife for recovering adrift cargo. All of this gives the ship a much higher chance of finding additional cargo whenever adrift cargo is recovered. This ship itself has a decent shield grid and hull rating for a mining ship topping out at 600 ZWs and 800 GPa respectively and a very viable range of 30 light years.
