Description:
Tula Frigates with bad performance usually get stripped and converted to space stations or freighters. These are the
post-Rebellion answer to quick ship rebuilds. The goal was to combine lab ships and tenders into something heavier
and with a ship that will be minimal powered when not in use. It will provide its one gravity without draining power.
2 Lab ships and 1/2 a tender are integrated.  The ship carries an additional 10dt of fuel for subcraft and the captain
has a .81dt storage locker. 
When rotation the two spirals contain enough gravity for the crew to stay healthy. The ship operates on 40% power
or less. It could theoretically survive for a year without access to a fuel source, not using weapons, accelerating less
that 25% of the time, not jumping and with a crew on 1/2 supplies.  The space station version will have a scraped
jump drive for an additional 42.54dt of facilities.
