YV-100 Light Freighter

One of the things I've been working on and contributing to the Gamer Nation at large have been maps of ship interiors for use with the Star Wars Roleplaying game.  Inspired by the published works of Map Designer Christopher West, I've only done a few thus far.  I've been pretty happy with the results of my endeavors.

Here's my latest one; the YV-100.  Designed by Corellian Engineering Corporation, it's design takes a nod from CEC's highly popular YT-1300 design.  One of the bit of "fluff" about this ship is that, unlike other CEC Designs, it's not as modular or easy to modify as the ships from the "YT" series.

WotC never published Saga Edition stats for this ship, but Darth_Scorpion on the d20 Radio forums came up with these home-brewed stats, which I approve.

Designer Notes
[*]The ships Dexterity score, but as it is a light freighter I didn't see it being particularly manoeuvrable and gave it the same score that the YT-1300 has
[*]Free Emplacement Points. As the YV series was remarked as being less adaptable than the YT-series, I decided to give the ship half the number of free EP that a YT-series ship has
[*]The Laser Cannons being controlled by the pilot, though it seems a reasonable solution
