XS Stock Light



The classic Freighter has advanced by leaps and bounds since the Dynamic class Freighters from the days of the Jedi Civil War. The freighter is larger and more versatile than its predecessors, and the XS Stock Light model also features a variety of significant upgrades that make it one of the fastest and most nimble ships in the galaxy.

In addition to an enlarged cargo hold, the XS also has secret compartments throughout the ship for transporting contraband and anything else the captain would prefer to keep hidden. If the captain prefers to simply avoid being boarded, the XS has proven itself to be fully capable. In addition to the standard laser and torpedo batteries, the starship is designed with upper and lower turrets that can be controlled manually or remotely from the cockpit.

Captains of these freighters typically live on board, so the XS Stock Light has all the creature comforts anyone could ask for, from a recreational lounge to extra sleeping quarters. It’s no wonder that it inspires such loyalty in its owners.

For upgrade purposes, the XS Stock Light has six unused emplacement points.

Notes: Ah, the classic Corellian Engineering Corps' asymetrical disk. When I was a kid, I thought they Millenium Falcon looked ridiculous, but I've grown to appreciate it.

I like the fact that this ship comes with smuggling compartments already installed. I wonder how they advertise that feature in the literature. Customs officials probably impound three or four XS Stock Lights on a daily basis just as a matter of course.
