Tula Frigates are one of the Pocket Empire, 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 .23dt storage locker.  Tulas have also
been used as freighters and space stations depending on the stage of decay.  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.
