Survey Ship

A class of ship specialising in astrographic surveys of starsystems. Essential for mapping navigation hazards. Carries a large complement of scientists, and can conduct other sorts of study also. Survey ships also routinely visit unmapped systems (see Empty Space) to check on the health of the star (for signs of instablitiy that might lead to nova or Supernova).

Survey findings are routinely passed to the Galactic Star Registry at Luna.
