Overview

The Worm is a short-range craft. It is mainly seen travelling between the planet and an orbital space station, and only occasionally seen outside of the space station's orbit. The Worm can also be carried by other craft, such as the giant Anaconda or Boa.


Notable features

The Worm is an inexpensive and adaptable craft - it can be outfitted for passenger transport, mining or as a lifeboat. It is usually unarmed and has only the shields necessary to protect it from minor collisions with micrometeorites. It can be modified to carry a small pulse (or mining) laser, but this option is rarely exercised as the ship simply isn't built for combat, and the laser would not be much help against even the most feeble attack.

It is rumoured that the thieves of the prototype Constrictor used a Worm disguised as a naval executive shuttle to sneak into a military compound on Reesdice. The Constrictor hasn't been seen since.


Variants

The most common variants of this craft are the Worm Miner, the Worm Prospector and the to a shuttle converted Navy Shuttle (Neolite Worm).
