|Indulgent-class Luxury Starliner
One of the largest, most exclusive, and most flamboyantly luxurious liners in production. Leonore Luxury Liners Incorporated's Indulgent-class starliner is a spacegoing monument to wealth and flagrant excess. A slow-moving vessel the size of a heavy cruiser, the liner sets the standard for luxury accommodations. To provide the ultimate space travel experience, its designers spared no expense in its building and outfitting each ship is brimming with rare and exotic materials and is tailored to exceed each passenger's requirements.
The onboard amenities provided by these starliners are vast. Each ship features multiple restaurants, several cantinas offering a wide range of nightlife activities, an assortment of zero-g pools of various sizes, spas, health clubs, gymnasiums, and an opulent casino. Some lndulgents contain miniature amusement parks, and all house a state-of-the-art theater capable of presenting theatrical performances that rival those in the Uscru District of Coruscant.
The Indulgent-class vessels are a limited production run sold exclusively to large cruise line corporations. They are commonly seen in the more well-traveled Outer Rim spacelanes, where they cruise to several scenic areas. They dock at the more civilized ports for resupply and for shore excursions for passengers and crew. While they are susceptible to attack, these ships are not completely helpless. They mount sophisticated electronic countermeasures and a number of weapons to deal with all but the most persistent pirates, and they have a powerful HoloNet transceiver for sending emergency distress calls.
USING THIS VEHICLE
Indulgent-class starliners are places where the wealthy spend their credits and time off: they make tempting targets for pirates, smugglers, and con artists. They also serve as a backdrop for clandestine encounters between spies on all sides of the galactic conflict.
Combat against an Indulgent-class starliner is often a one-sided affair. Its armament is impressive for a starliner but is no match for a determined attack force. If one ship is attacking, the starliner orients all shields to that one facing to protect it from enemy fire. Its crew works each round to restore shields and repair hull trauma, and system strain. The starliner's gunners fire as minion groups in pairs, attempting to disable enemy ships while the bridge sends out a distress call. If that call is received. assistance is usually only minutes away.
ADVENTURE AND ENCOUNTER SEEDS
1. While the PCs are meeting with an agent aboard an Indulgent starliner, the ship comes under attack by a trio of pirate vessels. The pirates disable the starliner's transmitter, board the cruise ship, and begin to rob the passengers. If any resistance is encountered, the lead pirate captain threatens over the intercom to start killing passengers unless the troublemakers surrender.
2. An Indulgent starliner suffers a critical drive failure and is drawn toward a pulsar. The PCs are the only ship around for several systems, and they are being hunted by the Empire. They must choose between helping the starliner and keeping their presence in the sector a secret.
