RIV Free Spirit
The RIV Free Spirit is a refitted and repurposed Garcax-class light interplanetary transport, manufactured in 47600 AGU by the New Harn division of Jascel Assembly Company. Originally christened the Hjimvurr, it was a member of the interplanetary fleet of Svulgiimn Shipping Solutions, Ltd. for 30 cycles, serving 15 different star systems, until its decommissioning following the dissolution of SSS. After being decommissioned, it was sold into the secondhand spacecraft market and passed around several sectors before settling at a secondhand vessel dealer on Terotewaukia.
After languishing in a bargain shipyard for three cycles, it was obtained by a freshly graduated Zak Kaiyo and his two friends Arcto Ekkrotus and Tobaais Waiaro, who gave the vessel a much-needed makeover. Damaged parts were replaced, light weapons were added, and the interior underwent fairly serious restructuring as well. The small shuttle and shuttle bay at the aft of the lower deck, a standard feature of Garcax-class vessels, were completely removed to double the size of the engine room; a necessary sacrifice to be able to fit a second fusion reactor, an amped-up MARC, extra fuel and air tanks, and significant additional hyperdrive infrastructure.
With much tribulation, the Hjimvurr was registered as an interstellar-rated vessel and rechristened to the Free Spirit, a name symbolizing its new captain’s desire to live a spacefaring existence free from the binds of planetside life.
