An Action VI transport bulk freighter

Bulk freighters were huge spaceships used to haul enormous cargo loads. Most of the ship's interior was occupied by cargo bays while the bridge and crew areas were often small and cramped. In spite of this, many spacers signed on to bulk freighters because of the profits involved.

Bulk freighters were very costly to obtain and operate, but the payoffs for transporting such huge loads were much higher than those earned with smaller and more inexpensive light freighters. Therefore they were mainly used by larger shipping concerns or smuggling organizations.


While growing up on Pellezara station, the young Tarrin Datch was frequently tasked with moving cargo freighters into parking slots while the pilots waited for their ships to be serviced. During one such assignment, Datch used a bulk freighter to perform a miniature Koiogran turn, destroying a dozen beacon pods in the process.[1]
