Mere 12K Bulk Freighter

Dating back to the days of slow interstellar travel, bulk freighters such as
the 12K would make the long hyperspace jumps, hauling thousands upon thousands
of tons of cargo from planet to planet. Often times these ships would remain
in hyperspace for weeks or months, making the long haul that smaller transports
simply could not do without making several layovers.

The 12K was a rather unremarkable design with nothing outstanding about it at
all. Much of the internal space was used up by the massive sublight drives,
which did make the 12K fast at sublight speeds when compared to other vessels
of its class. The bridge was located at the front of the vessel, with the crew
and passenger bunks located directly behind it. The mess and refresher units
were all located in a room just behind the bunks. This was all the living room
that crew and passengers were able to enjoy, the rest of the ship was dedicated
to cargo space.

The 12K was commonly found making the long transport runs from the Core worlds
to the Colonies and Mid Rim, dating back a century even before the Republic's
Dreadnaughts were first designed. Sometime after the Battle of Naboo, many of
these vessels were converted into "Resistance Cruisers" by the Mere.
