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 16 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 .66t
safe in his office.
Lifeboats are in the same location but externally attached allowing use of some internal space for cargo. Reduced powerplant and fuel are converted to armour and cargo.
The TL15 version was first layed down in 1114, 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..  At first glance, it carries a rather small cargo of 120dt. 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.
