Freighters are built to go long and slow. They handle differently from standard starships.
Only the 4 modules down the center line of a freighter have actual function. Use whatever modules you like for the other modules to represent that they are loaded up with stuff the Freighter is carrying but the modules do not function or have battlestations.
Freighters do not generate power to Guns or Shields. Their Engines operate as normal.
Freighter are automatically successful in one simple maneuver per Phase to accelerate to Speed 1, decelerate by 1 to Speed 0 or turn 1 hex facing.
Any attempt to maneuver the Freighter outside of these limited parameters (including landing) treats the Freighter as size 8.
A Freighter makes hull checks as a size 0 ship but if it does explode, it detonates like a size 5 explosion.
