These starships are the communications network of the navy, as well as the "Staff Cars", "VIP Shuttles", and "Diplomatic Couriers". The Xboat network is the backbone of any large interstellar state; the high-jump xboats link major worlds, while the slower couriers provide communications with outposts and colonies.
