    DESCRIPTION
    Various factions want to find resources and seek out weaknesses in other groups. To do this they need scout ships but often said factions have reservations about using the same ships as their enemies. So numerous scout ships were created and a the place in the market was constantly fought over. Better products made for less was the way of the capitalist game. That left a host of different ship designs that were soon outpaced in a mere decade. But it left such vessels easier to acquire and in a more common fashion.

    The Waxa class scout ship is one of the vessels that is still well held in scout ship designs. As fast as some light freighters, which it technically is itself, the scout ship is even more maneuverable and can only be outmaneuvered by high grade military vessels. The desire for a ship that handled well in rough turbulence and dangerous space phenomena was called for and made it a joy to fly in. It has a small amount of ten tons cargo capacity though this makes it a rather expensive freighter with plenty of amenities.

    Inside the Waxa has a grand class 3 hyperdrive making it one of the faster hyperdrive capable vessels on the market. Long range comms, scanning and data collection allow the scout to effectively complete its role for whatever endeavor it is focusing on. A science lab and medical suite allow it to facilitate its own research and self sufficiency that is sometimes only found on capital sized craft.

    The dorsal mounted dual light laser cannon turret is the ships main means of defense when plying the dangerous frontier or returning to hostile territory. A tractor beam allows for movement and control in delicate situations and is common among such research vessels. Keep in mind that this is a relative strength beam and nowhere near as powerful as a capital craft strength tractor beam. The ships light deflector shield helps protect against whatever passive dangers may be waiting for it or sometimes the rare active combat situation.

    LEGALITY
    Legal. The Waxa is very minimally armed so as to be legal in nearly any system and so as not to provoke new species.

    INTENT
    To create an advanced scout-type vessel for use by an associated character type.

    ADVANCED TECH
    Yes. While Waxas are more common they are more expensive than a simple light freighter and take more to maintain. It would require a plot for a character to earn, steal or otherwise acquire one.

    No, I did not list the number of threads it would require. @AutoFox What do you think makes sense?

    2-3 Threads, difficulty depending, is pretty standard for most AT ships unless it's super high end or powerful.

    I do remember you requesting in the past to state the approximate number of threads in the advanced tech section. I forgot to do that this time. Sorry.
