If the 50Dton Modular Cutter is the workhorse of the Imperium, then there has to be a mule somewhere to carry all those cutter modules from system to system. The Transit-class is designed to service those small out of the way worlds that are seldom visited by larger vessels. The Transit-class is a small interstellar barge that can carry two standard 30Dton Modules. It is capable of Jump 1 and 1G Acceleration. The crew complement is two (Captain/Pilot and Engineer). It has one hardpoint but few examples are armed. Many of these vessels are in use as family Traders, often with one module space taken up with family accommodation and the other used to transport cargo.
