Type R Subsidized Merchant – Classic Traveller

This picture of a Type R Subsidized Merchant by William H Keith captured my imagination as a young Traveller player when I first saw it when I got my copy of Supplement 7: Traders and Gunboats  in 1980 or 81.  Thirty five years later is  still does.

Since I began drawing these Traveller starship deck plans I always had it in the back of my mind to do one of this vessel. She is a 400-Dton ship, has a crew of seven and can carry up to sixteen passengers and 200 tons of cargo. Her drives are capable of Jump 1 and she plods along at 1G acceleration. She carries a small 20ton launch on a dorsal mount for on-planet errands and passenger transfers.   I have copied the layout from Traders and Gunboats as far as I could, but I had to change the location of a few doors here and there to use some standard. Hope you enjoy this one.

  1. One suggestion, put one or two bulkheads into that cargo bay. That seems a very large open space for a…um…spaceship.
