Known for building ships that are fast, sturdy and highly customizable, their vessels essentially serve as blank slates for an owner’s modifications. CEC is also known for its unsupported short runs of certain products, when an engineer gets “creative” and supplies customers with uniquely tuned equipment. Luck can be important when buying from CEC. The XS Stock Light Freighter came into service almost twenty years ago. Larger and more versatile than its predecessors, and featuring a variety of optional upgrades that can make it one of the most nimble ships in the galaxy, the model has seen more than its share of use. Rigged with an oversized cargo hold, passenger quarters, multiple laser turrets and a thick armor layer, the XS is an old favorite of captains traveling through dangerous space. The XS has one other feature not widely advertised: its maintenance compartments can be rearranged and concealed to serve as ideal hiding spots for contraband cargo. Even security officers aware of this trick can be stumped by the work of an imaginative owner.
