Star Wars - A New Threat Arises
Archemede’s Fulcrum – YT-1930 Correllian Transport
Based largely on the famous YT-1300 deck plan, the YT-1930 is another excellent entry in the YT series. All YT-series ships are solid light freighters, renowned for being sturdy and reliable. Their greatest asset is the easily modified nature. With less effort than nearly any other ship line, the YT series vessel can be fined-tuned to act as a smuggler, bulk hauler, luxury transport, or even a gunship or patrol craft.

The YT-1930 is no exception to the rule. The cockpit was moved back to the center line of the ship and it boasts heavier shields and weapons than most civilian freighters. The YT-1930 was a limited run test vessel preceding the official commercial version – the YT-2000. Because of this, the ship is somewhat touchier than most of the extremely reliable YT designs. A mechanic trying to modify or repair a YT-1930 takes a -2 penalty on his skill checks. The YT-2000 was very popular but had a short run as CEC wanted to push the new YT-2400 design which was much more robust, not having been compromised by espionage or rushed design work. the YT-1930 is able to use many of the same parts as the YT-2000 and YT-2400, but given its buggy nature, the few ships produced were considered unreliable and were discounted and devalued.
