Four Freedoms class freighter
The Four Freedoms class freighter with its crew of 10 and large cargo capacity is an increasingly common sight in Commonwealth starports. Its general ruggedness and large number of installed hardpoints make it the perfect vessel for hauling freight in unsettled regions of space, especially along the Magog Quarantine Zone. In a bid to sieze a larger share of the lucrative trade running cargo to high risk regions, Fountainhead-based shipping company Zarathustra Cargo recently placed an order for 2,000 of these ships, forcing designer Newport News Shipbuilding into working overtime to meet the demand.
