Spaceship Engineering Technology
Available To: All Major Factions
Prerequisite: Life Support Modules
Difficulty: 0.5
Unlocks: Tier 1 Freighter Hull
Required By: Military Space Program, Well-Established Logistics, Specialized Space Forces


Freight Transport is another critical early Technology from the Spaceship Engineering tree, and with a Difficulty rating of just 0.5, should be one of the first researches a new player carries out. Once complete, the player will be able to design new hull blueprints in any shipyard, allowing the construction of Tier 1 Freighter hulls. These ships can be configured to carry passengers, Cargo, and/or olzine fuel in greater quantities than Scout hulls can, but do not typically have Weapon hard points.

This technology is also crucial as a prerequisite for technologies which unlock basic Frigate and Destroyer hulls, as well as (eventually) larger logistics ships.
