Ac-L1-01g Ur-class Ferry

The Ac-L1-01a Ur-class Ferry is a general-purpose civilian transport created by Ahmida Civiltech in AR 844.

About the Ship

With the rise of interplanetary travel and the increasingly popularity of orbital habitats, Ahmida Civiltech recognized the need to provide a ferry service to the civilian populace, putting space travel further into the hands of the common person. It is a perfectly average, comfortable ferry capable of transport a few hundred passengers through space for short, in-system trips. Although the vessel might appear to be fragile at a glance, the Ur is sturdy and well armored due to its inclusion of high-grade metamaterial windows and ADNR armor, giving it durability comparable to a military vessel.

The standard make does not include faster-than-light capacity, but many models have been retrofitted with acceptably fast MASC Drives, as effective prices have dropped in recent years.

Key Features

  • Strong armor.
  • Large passenger capacity.
  • Large cargo capacity.
  • Comfort.

Mission Specialization

  • Interplanetary passenger transport.
  • Low-to-medium volume cargo transport.


Ac-L1-1a Ur-class Ferry

History and Background

With the majority of the Iromakuanhe population now living in space colonies and orbital cities over the three planetary bodies of the Iruotl System, Ahmida worked to design a reasonably comfortable transport ship that could be mass produced to carry a bulk volume of people to and from the colonies, doing away with the squalor of converted cargo haulers in favor of well-stocked, exotic-looking vessels with creature comforts that occasionally bordered on luxury. The vessel was commercial success, with many corporations purchasing them for their exclusive use and the wealthier citizens of the Commonwealth owning a handful of these golden sail-shaped vessels as private yachts.

As time went on, the Ur became a much-beloved symbol of the Iromakuanhe Golden Age1) and of the fine abilities of more conventional engineering. Although Ahmida produces very few of these vessels every year, it is sufficiently popular to earn them a profit in replacement components and their transport service is one of the mainstays of civilian space travel in the Iromakuanhe Astral Commonwealth.
