Although some criticise the Classic Space Federation for being too militaristic, its leaders insist its primary goals are peaceful co-operation and exploration. At the forefront of exploration missions is Chris Giddins' LL-700 Cosmic Explorer.
The LL-700 Cosmic Explorer is a long range exploration vessel carrying science teams, equipment and supplies to the outermost rim of space exploration. Equipped with 2 heavy Quantumcore Drives, the 700CE is fast and nimble for it's size. Even though it is designed as a science vessel, the CE can be used for cargo runs, military resupply, and troop deployment. The LL-702 Lunar Defender was specifically designed to be transported in the 700CE-s cargo bay standard.
