Freelancer

Freelancer.jpg
The Freelancer is a medium-sized long range cargo hauler manufactured by MISC. The Freelancer's modularity, versatility, and firepower have made it extremely popular among owner-operators and major corporations alike. The chassis also serves as the base for several specialized variants. The Freelancer was the first ship class to be developed as part of a unique technology-sharing agreement with the Xi'an government.[1]

Freelancer DUR

MISC-freelancer-dur-side-3.4.1.jpg
The MISC Freelancer DUR is the exploration variant of the Freelancer ship. It sacrifices some of the cargo capacity of the standard Freelancer in exchange for a more advanced scanner, an expanded fuel tank, a fuel refinery and an enhanced jump drive. This may seem like a bad call to some, but those who value discovery over profit will find it to be their ship of choice.[2][3]

Freelancer MAX

The MISC Freelancer MAX is a heavy transport variant of the Freelancer ship. It sacrifices weaponry for an increased cargo capacity and has a extra pair of main thrusters to help it move larger payloads. This makes it ideal for moving heavy equipment, vehicles or raw materials.[4]

Freelancer MIS

The MISC Freelancer MIS is a militarized variant of the classic Freelancer ship. This version sacrifices cargo capacity to make way for an internal missile loading system.[5] As a Freelancer variant the MIS is well suited to patrol work, and with 28 size 3 missiles the MIS can punch well above its weight class. These qualities make it a popular choice for militias and independent outfits.

History

The Freelancer follows the MiSC-HI concept of extreme modularity on a smaller, more distinctive hull. Initially marketed as an efficient long-haul merchant ship for private enterprises, the Freelancer quickly became the ship of choice for dedicated explorers. With the range of a transport plus room to install advanced scanning and jump technology, Freelancers have enabled their captains to chart a number of new jump points in recent years. With a noted engine upgrade capacity and the ability to maneuver better than any other dedicated transport ship, it is no wonder the Freelancer's roles continue to expand.

It can also be said of the Freelancer that it has inspired more debate than any other spacecraft on the market. Detractors claim the hull is unattractive, that the cockpit's field of view is unnecessarily limiting and that on paper it is not suited to the roles it has expanded to fill. The Freelancer's supporters, however, are equally dedicated to the ship. They argue vehemently that the ship is the secret of their business success: that rare cost-effective ship that fulfills many of the same roles as the RSI Constellation, but requiring far fewer crew.

In some sense, the Freelancer image has begun to appear at odds with that of MISC itself: dashing space captains charting new frontiers on a wing and a prayer versus heavily organized corporate governance. The truth is, the Freelancer project would not exist without that governance. Every aspect that makes the design popular for independent pilots was carefully researched, analyzed, tested and produced. From the optimal radar package placement to the vacuum form cupholders, the components of the Freelancer went through hundreds of thousands of man-hours in an effort to produce a design that comes together seamlessly.[9]
