[Future Perfect] Silverlight Freighter

Perhaps the most common bulk freighter handling runs between gated systems in Faction space, the Silverlight has dozens of subtle variations. Some faction governments have their own preferred variations, but the most common designs find use among small and large business ventures alike. With a massive cargo capacity and docking capabilities for its own support craft over long hauls, the Silverlight is simply a classic design with exceptional utilitarian value.

[Future Perfect] FANG Class Starfighter

FANG is the generic name for any starfighter mounting twin, light rail guns. Most Fangs are made individually or in small numbers by independent parties. A generally underpowered power supply compared to most military craft is not a hindrance due to the low power consumption of Railgun technology, and often affords a hobbyist or weapons engineer a little wiggle room when customizing the vessel. Most commonly, a simple anti missile counter measure system is added, though it is not uncommon to see reinforced hulls or even improved thrusters in stead.
