Cormorant Freighter (400dt)
The Cormorant is a medium Jump-1 freighter, easily recognised by the double domed front and staggered block design. It is 38m in length, and 17m wide.
One of the earliest Terran Jump-1 medium freighters, the Cormorant made use of the smaller and more efficient jump drives that were the mainstay of TL 11 ship design. Affordable by small companies, it was ships like the Cormorant that revolutionised interstellar economics, by making frequent, tramp trade possible.
The next big jump in trade would be the small 100t free traders capable of Jump-2, not possible until TL 13. Until then though, ships like this were a common sight.
