Alongside the Beowulf and Empress Mavara class Traders, the starship that screams Traveller is the Type S Suleiman Scout/Courier. I can hardly remember a Traveller games for the last three decades when a Type S didn’t make an appearance somewhere along the story line.

That could also account for the bad smell that Type S scouts typically have emanating from the air circulation system.
