Tavares Class II Commercial Freighter

«Last Updated – October 16, 2020»

Tavares Freighter

design by FASA

NOTES:
Designed as a light freighter, the Tavares Class has served Star Fleet for 23 years in that capacity. With a cargo capacity of 45,000 tons, these ships ply the space lanes carry­ing out the duties of the Materiel Command. These vessels are not only used by Star Fleet but are also to be found in the civil sector. The 1,226 vessels produced for Star Fleet account for only one-fourth of the total built. These small freighters can usually be seen at any starport throughout the Federation and the Triangle.

Of the 1,226 Mk I vessels built for Star Fleet, 985 remain in active service, while 72 have been scrapped, 122 lost for various reasons, 40 sold to the private sector.

The Tavares takes its name from a late 20th-century personality responsible for the Terran movement to populate the nearby planets and thus begin their expansion into the galaxy.
