What a captain needs most from his ship is durability, flexibility and low cost of maintenance. Pretty don’t much figure into it when you're trying to scratch out a living on the Rim. Enter the Shu Fu (Pillbug) Class Light-Bulk Transport, one of the starter ships planned for Firefly Online. She may not be the prettiest boats to ever sail the Black, but for a captain just starting out she’s a pretty shiny ride – reliable, maneuverable and a surprisingly large cargo hold for a ship in her class. Captains who fly Shu Fu are damned proud of them, some going as far as to say, “She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts.”
