Any reasonable weaponry therefore would probably be a rear laser to deter chasing craft. I am also thinking of limiting the ship to having forward and rear beam lasers only.

Regarding the specifications I was thinking along the lines of a fast ship with little cargo capacity or space for missiles.
Agreed. And the non-removable cabins as standard? I'm sure a script for similar capabilities has been made before (anyone know?).

@ JazHaz Yes non removable cabins will be standard so that if purchased it will be a passenger ship rather than an all purpose vessel.

That way it will provide the player with a completely different choice of playing style than is usually the case.

@ Smivs Thanks for the scripting tip i.e. YellOo cabs :-)

You're welcome :)
I should point out that the 100Cr cost of the aborted removal is refunded to the player to make the 'fix' invisible. Of course there is a potential exploit here if this is done at an OXP station where discounts are available, and the actual cost is less than 100Cr. It is a minor point and I have yet to fully sort that out.
