    DESCRIPTION
    Republic Fleet Systems, at one time one of the Galaxy's most prolific warship manufacturers, has been reduced to a shadow of its former self over the last 5 centuries. Since the Sith takeover of the Galactic Republic, the company's special relationship with the government has effectively ended, being supplanted by the Sith-backed Imperial Fleet Works corporation. Republic Fleet Systems has nevertheless managed to stay in business, primarily by transferring most of it marketing and product development to commercial sales rather than military. Due to its status as a remnant of the old Republic era, and the use some of its products have been put to by less reputable elements of the spacer community, the company has acquired something of a "bad boy" reputation.

    One of the company's better known civilian offerings is the Mynock-series freighter, a fast cargo transport which has become a staple of courier services and smugglers alike. 30 meters in length, it can carry up to 20 standard tons of cargo and can achieve a stock top speed of about 70 MGLT, not enough to outrun most starfighters but still impressive. It can nominally be operated by a single pilot, but a copilot is required to do things like operate the ship's defensive ball turret, which is located at the rear of the ship to better fend off pursuing vessels. The Mynock can carry up to 4 passengers in addition to the crew.

    The Mynock is renowned for its speed and versatility, being the freighter of choice for hot-shot pilots the Galaxy over. As mentioned, it is popular with courier services transporting small amounts of high-value cargo, and with smugglers moving the same sort of thing. The type is often modified by the latter group, and customized Mynocks are a common sight in and around less reputable spaceports.

    LEGALITY
    Legal. Mynock-class freighters are a common sight across the Galaxy, and they are considered innocuous enough in most systems. Customized examples may draw slightly more scrutiny from authorities, however.

    INTENT
    To meet Gen-tech requirements and provide a place to record modifications to Ner'Giza's ship.

    ADVANCED TECH
    No. Mynock-class freighters are fairly common, and would be simple to buy, steal or otherwise acquire.

    Best to actually reference the acquisition in the original writeup, not a comment. Use an asterisk or something to the side to minimize space (that's what I do) or some fun symbol.
