Orion Class Star Clipper[1]

The Orion Class Star Clipper is a light Imperial vessel.[1]

Considered a rarity amongst Imperial starships, these vessels are designed for cargo transport at high speeds. Orions are constructed to transport smaller, high-value cargoes that must reach their destination quickly or through hostile territory. Rather than rely on armed escorts, Orions travel alone. Often they are successful in their runs, but they do have one major drawback. The redundant internal bulkheads and exterior armor that would normally be added have been forgone in order to increase speed and cargo capacity. As a result, an Orion can easily be crippled in only a few hits.[1]
