“One in every four space faring casualties results from a lack of fuel. For long distance trips or cargo runs keep a Fuel Tanker close by, you’ll be glad you did.”
All space faring vehicles, be they battle cruisers or cargo transports, require fuel of some sort. This basic substance comes in several forms, but the need of it in engines and reactors is undeniable. The Fuel Tanker is a mobile, minimalistic vessel that serves a singular purpose; to refill starships with precious hydrogen crystal. The actual ship requires no crew and consists of a massive tank and an automated hose that houses an A.I computer capable of attaching and pumping fuel into any sized tank.
The Fuel Tanker can be towed by larger ships, or can pilot itself using a rudimentary onboard A.I.
