Banu traders are renowned for their merchant prowess, traveling the space lanes and trading with everyone from humans to the Vanduul! Their sturdy, dedicated trading ships are prized beyond all other transports, sometimes passing from generation to generation of Banu.
The Merchantman is a freighter commonly seen in the Banu Protectorate and beyond. They are operated as both transport ships and mobile trading posts, with areas aboard ship where traders can display and exchange wares. In Banu culture, Merchantmen are utilized across generations and continually modified, creating a wide variety of different sets of specifications. Although the Merchantman is not as easy to configure as a Human-designed ship, they are valued by Human owners for their reliability and durability.
