     The Troop Transport is one of the latest additions to the Serendip
Navy. Its shape is a slightly flattened sphere, and is able to land on a
planet's surface to offload its troops.  The 400 Marines are kept in
cold sleep to save on space and life support, and several medics are
aboard to ensure safe revival.  The 32 tons of cargo space is usually
filled by equipment and weapons for the troops.  The ship has dampers,
which can be used to protect the landing zone, and carries a 50t cutter
(with ATV module).

     Ships of the Ajax class are named for legendary and/or fictional
warriors (Lancelot, Alexander, Lee, etc).

     Number in service: 500.

Serendip Termopylae Class Troop Transport

This new troop transport is of the same size and shape as a Trafalgar Class Cruiser (i.e., it's a Death Egg. They are named for famous land battles.

The carousel is a cylinder with slots for 5 200-T cylindrical containers. 4 of these are passenger containers with 400 passenger couches. The last is a cargo module with room for 200 tons of equipment. The two landing shuttles each have a bay where a container can just slot in. They berth just aft of the carousel and can be "loaded" from it. While the shuttles go down to the planetary surface with two cylinders, troops are being awakened and put into the two empty passenger cylinders. Troop equipment can be carried down in the fifth module. The cargo bay is located just forward of the carousel and can be loaded into the cargo cylinder from there. All in all the shuttles can ferry 4000 men and 800 tons of equipment down in 7 round trips.

The low berths are themselves buildt into 200-T cylindrical modules (this is achieved without waste space by placing diamond-crosshaped fuel tanks between the cylinders), and in an emergency they can be ferried down without awakening the soldiers. Or, more usefully, some low berth cylinders can be removed prior to leaving base and extra cargo cylinders substituted.

Troop landing shuttle

The landing shuttles are designed to stand up to pretty hard handling; they are fully streamlined and can get down and up fast. Nevertheless they should not be used in the face of spinal mounts :-)

Notes: This is an assault troop carrier. It is designed to land and
deploy its troops on the ground. Only 100 of the marines are awake
during flight--the remainder are awakened only for an assault. This ship
does not normally have a frozen watch, although it could carry one in
place of some marines. It has fuel scoops and a fuel purifcation plant.
Each of these ship carries a full Marine Division.
