SHIP NOTES: This is the lighter and less equipped version of the PDV, the ship that Macrocosm uses to patrol star systems. A certain number is assigned to each planet or system as these ships do not have jump drive. They are equipped to stay in space for about a week or until the crew can be replaced. They also occasionally tramsfer government personnel if there are other planets or colonies in the system.
