Commentary: This ship is an ISC design that specializes in finding new trading opportunities around the frontiers. It is basically a light freighter with some improved sensors so they scout new planets and a small vehicle bay that usually holds a Gravvan for planetary explorations. This ship normally have a crew of 46 but an advanced SI computer have reduced the crew requirement to 9. The ship can run perfectly well like this, but in case of a malfunction, it's dangerously understaffed for damage control. As it's not intended to enter combat, this hasn't been a problem.
