Corvette

“A balance between speed, protection, and offensive capability, the Corvette is the only choice for the smart and savvy trader.”

While the Merchant Cruiser has speed, and the Merchant Freighter boasts powerful shields, the Corvette is the balance between these two options. While not leaning toward either spectrum, the Corvette has capable top speeds and stronger shields than that of the Merchant Cruiser. Initially this ship holds more than the Merchant Cruiser as well, though the maximum size of the cargo hold is somewhat smaller.

At slightly more than the cost of its counterparts, the Corvette is a reliable and affordable trade ship that can satisfy the needs of almost any type of trader.
