Alternative 100Dton Scout/Courier

I was browsing Star Wars deckplans the other day on the internet and came across this ship – the CU-37 Light Courier and it’s extended version, the CU-37XL.  It looked as if it could be Traveller-ised. So here is a 100 Displacement Ton (Dton) Scout/Courier/Small Packet merchant.  This is a no-frills craft.

Performance is Jump 2, with Maneuver Drive 2 and a Type 2 Fusion Powerplant. The standard Traveller Scout/Courier has four staterooms that can accommodate up to eight people (at a stretch).  This vessel can also carry eight people, but staterooms are more sleeping pods – kind of like those coffin hotels in Japan (but brought as four normal Traveller staterooms). Beds can be stowed to provide a small desk or sitting area. There is one communal fresher and one head in this ship. A small galley (unusable when the forward entry ramp is deployed) and a crew lounge (really just the main passageway) are available to give the crew a bit more space.

Engineering pods containing the drives and power plant are located at pods at the end of the short wings, accessed through a connecting corridor.  This vessel carries a total of 32Dtons of fuel is bunkered in wing tanks and in two tanks at the rear of the ship.  This allows one Interstellar Jump 2 and an additional Jump1 without refueling. The vessel is streamlined and has fuel scoops and purifiers.

Aft is a small cargo bay that can hold an Air/Raft and up to 4 tons of cargo (8 tons if no Air/Raft is carried). A loading door is installed in the floor.  At the end of the ship is a standard docking airlock. The layout means that clambering over and around cargo is routine aboard this vessel.

There is one ventral turret that is controlled from the bridge.
