The ECS North Star is a freighter and survey vessel that has been in service for almost 100 years.

Boomer communities in the mid-2100s favored the North Star for space-faring and as a colonization ship. Families and communities were born and raised on vessels of this class for generations and an entire network of trade ships has grown over the years.
