Stylus Ship

also known as an iceborer, this long, narrow starship was used to break through the icy crust of moons and planets in order to reach the minerals and ores hidden beneath. The ship was tapered near the top, coming to an armor-plated point, and equipped with a simple drive system that moved it toward the planet and then back out of the hole it formed. It had only enough maneuverability to move back and forth, and the drive systems were not sufficient for system-to-system travel. They were used almost exclusively by miners, since the design of the stylus ship prohibited any additional systems. A single missile launcher was located in the nose of the ship, which could be used to launch an explosive warhead prior to the nose of the ship piercing the surface, helping the ship to borer deeper into the planet's crust. A stylus ship had to be transported into its target system by a carry ship.
