Galen II

The Solthka Mining Corporation is renowned for its fleet of Kroyla Mk. III tug/prospector vessels. Kroylaclass vessels are used for long-range excursions into unknown territory and are capable of fuel replenishment from solar coronas and solar winds using a magnetic scoop. Captain Relco's ship, the Galen II, is typical of the class. It has accomodations for one crew member and cargo capacity sufficient to carry a range of ore samples back to its base to be assayed.
