A cargo ship for transporting heavy ores and refined alloys
About this creation
This ship is designed to move heavy ores and refined super heavy alloys around a solar system quickly. Because of the high density of the ores and alloys it transports it needs large engines to build up momentum due to the high mass it is transporting. The ship is intended to operate within a single system and is incapable of planetary landings. It can enter a space station hanger but a tug and lack of artificial gravity are needed.
The starboard side has two large doors which open to the vacuum of space. Allowing easy loading and unloading without being impeded by gravity. Artificial gravity is only kept on the bridge and walkway. Also seen is the small airlock leading to the bridge.
Here you can see the walkway connecting the bridge to the hatch on the port side.

Although the ship only needs one pilot to operate there are seats provided for two more. This allows people to take over on longer journeys or if there is a problem with the pilot.
