DESCRIPTION
The core and it's inhabitants are more 'civilized' so to keep a low profile Malakai has acquired a ship that lacks any external armaments or anything that might draw the eye of the law. The Tumbleweed is the result. A "quad five" express courier with aftermarket upgrades to make it more manuverable, have medium shields though dropping its maximum speed a full twenty MGLT. However Malakai knows that he might need a little boost in a tight spot so both a fusial afterburner and a thrust de-limiter have been added to manually trigger additional speed when needed.

More often than not an R6 unit is used since the vessel's design does not come with a built in navicomputer. A single blaster pistol and vibroblade are always kept within reach of the pilot's chair and a Yellow Box has yet to be needed though is kept in the storage area of the ship.

LEGALITY
Legal. Star skiffs such as the Quad-Five are considered innocuous enough under most jurisdictions, and are not restricted in most systems.

INTENT
To create a modified smuggling ship that lacks weapons but makes up for it with other characteristics. Based on the original writeup of 5-555 quad five express courier.
