Pathfinder class Scout Cruisers are a common version of the 800t Chameleon Merc Cruiser. They
were more popular with corporations and small governments than the scout service. The ISS
depended more heavily on the variations of the 1kdt Xboat tender, couriers and scouts. Pathfinder
is a direct market competitor to the Explorer class survey cruiser.  It differs in a higher cost for the
hull type, external ship's boats, and a higher computer sensor rating.
