The Silk Road-class Independent Merchant is a common sight on the fringes of the Imperium, running speculative cargos and freight to worlds that are traditionally off the major trade routes.  With increased cargo capacity, passengers space, acceleration, jump capability and defensive capacity, this ship represents the next step up from a free or far trader.  With the increased potential for profit comes the increased operations costs, but it is assumed that an owner has learned how to manage these problems by the time he or she can afford this ship.

The ship requires eight crew: pilot, navigator, two engineers, medic, steward and two gunners.  Many ships have crew members doubling up on some jobs to make room for more passengers.  The ship typically runs with ten low berth passengers and up to sixteen middle passengers.  While accommodations can be made for high passengers, such passengers are rare on the lesser-traveled routes this ship flies.

While the Type L is no match for a typical pirate corsair, its defensive armament and increased acceleration makes it a more challenging target for smaller craft.  The ship’s increased computer capacity allows it to go on offense with missile attacks, giving the ship a limited stand-off capacity.  The ship’s large cargo hold is also an attractive feature, as is its expanded secure storage capacity and available space for upgrades in the engineering section.
