Second-hand ships

Would you buy a used spacecraft from this humanoid?
Some shipyards will offer, when available, second-hand ships at reduced prices. Commanders low on funds can trade in a new, unequipped ship for a used model and make enough on the deal to fit it out with more formidable weaponry, better defences and other hardware.

Although space-legal, a second-hand vessel will not match the performance characteristics of a new model. Many also suffer from reduced reliability, and the extra maintenance costs will add up over time. Pilots of pre-owned ships may face other issues, too, such as unusual control systems, fittings designed for other species, and residual odours. However, none of these are insurmountable; and with plenty of loving care a second-hand craft can carry you clear across the galaxy.
