The Type 32 FTL Tug is a ship designed to move around much larger ships. In port, it manuevers large, unwieldy ships around into docking, allowing them to dock in more places. The FTL Tug can also, as its name implies, move things that lack FTL capability at FTL Speed.
The Type 32 FTL Tug is a cube with a large cluster of engines on one side, and large vernier thrusters on every other side. It has magnetic clamps on the front, and special latches on the sides to connect to other Type 32 FTL Tugs. There is a large, windowed cockpit off to one side near the front, and three stalks, all four of which have navigation lights.
Origin's Design team C came up with the idea of a small tug that not only was useful for moving things in port, but also for moving larger structures from system to system via an overpowered FTL Drive that is capable of producing a much larger bubble than a ship this size would ever need.
Class: Type 32 FTL Tug Type: Tug Designers: Origin Design Team C Manufacturer: Origin. Production: mass production Fielded by: Various
Crew: 1 operator Maximum Capacity: There's one seat. I bet you could fit two people in there, though.

Continuum Distortion Drive: 5,000c Hyperspace Fold Drive: .4ly/min Sublight Engines: .45c Range: the FTL tug has a theoretically unlimited range, but it is functionally limited by the pilot's need to eat, sleep, and relieve themselves.

See Damage Rating (Version 2) for an explanation of the damage system.
The Type 32 FTL Tug has a large, comfortable chair with a five-point harness to keep the pilot in place. The Pilot controls the Tug via a pair of Joysticks which can move forward, backward, side to side, up, down, and in just about any direction in between, in order to precisely maneuver the vessel. Behind the pilot's seat is a small 2m^3 compartment which has a small toilet, and storage for rations and a safety kit.
The Type 32 FTL Tug is constructed of Durandium, which is reinforced in key areas with Nerimium.
