The Leviathan is a favored merchant among crews. Officers are single bunked in double staterooms. The ships are designed for long haul travel but must refuel frequently. Many captains have been known to change this and convert
some "lower level" officer staterooms (6) into fuel or special storage (24dt) and eliminate the pinnace (52dt) or a
lifeboat (26dt).  Either way its a comfortable merchant ship and safe with backup drives.  The ship carries 17 tons of
extra fuel for subcraft or to sustained .35wks on the main drive.  It carries 300 days (10mo.) of consumables and the captain has a .1t safe in his office.
The TL14 version was first layed down in 1102, designed jointly by Bilstein Yards of Glisten and the Baraccai Technum,
 versions of the Leviathan have been in production for hundreds of years. The vessel can land on type0 and 1
atmosphere worlds. The design is for sale by Bilstein Yards and has been upgraded to include a TL15 version.  At first
 glance, it carries a rather small cargo of 70dt. But its capable of converting staterooms, subcraft and other areas to
 accomodate larger runs. It can also convert cargo into staterooms for liner duty. This vessel is BV and BTs attempt at a
 multi-mission merchant vessel.
