The Saint class gig/lifeboat was commonly produced for that last 100yrs of the 3rd Imperium. Her benefit was
flexibility. The 10dt of emergency low berths could be quickly removed with built in grav plates. This allowed the
standard vessel usage to be a cargo gig.

It normally include 12 weeks of stores for the pilot and 6 weeks for the passengers (assuming their in ELB longer).
Without the manuever drive the plant will stay operational for 4 weeks (per tank) before depleting fuel. Fuel
skimming equipment is included. 

The Emergency Low Berth (ELB) attaches to cargo nets and auto latches in the bay and can be loaded in 2 minutes.
The vessel is not equiped with a stateroom but does have a fresher and micro-galley creating a basic survival
environment for the Pilot.

Special Features:
  • Equiped with .5dt of emergency survival equipment
    • (tents, cooking, humaniti-hygene products, knives  and a medical kit).
  • The lifeboat is armoured assuming its a hostile environment.
  • An Emergency Manuever Overdrive
    • Puts a week worth of fuel through the manuever drive in 20 minutes (1turn).
    • This results in an drive flare 200 feet long
    • Performance is 3G until the end of the turn
    • The manuever drive is slag.
  • Fuel is stored in 2 1dt tanks. The 2nd tank can be used for cargo when empty.
