Jupiter class vessels were developed as the first interstellar ships.  It was fairly difficult to plot jump
travel resulting in the loss of some early vessels.   The first version was a test vehicle jupiter-1 that
successfully travelled to another system and back through automation.  Eventially the 2Tv  and 2Mv
versions were produced. The first version was disk shaped and had the ability had a smaller internal
environment (Tv for Tight Version). The second version was more spacious for the crews by having
external fuel tanks it ejects in take off and is designed for deeper space flights (Master Version). 

Both ships contain a mini-gig (pod) and atv (chariott) for additional functionality. They are capable
of support large crews of 7 but these were originally limited to provide additional resources. However,
the 2tv was unarmed and unarmoured.
