The GJ-55 Carrier is a combat and delivery shuttle that’s two decades obsolete. Affectionately known as the “flying brick” by its many users, the carrier is fast, reliable, sturdy, and ugly as sin. The ribbed support structure means that it can survive reentry up to and exceeding mach 24, and the myriad boosters along the hull give it unparalleled maneuverability. However, it’s long since fallen out of favor. As it turns out, looks do in fact matter.

The second that a prettier model appeared, the UAN promptly abandoned the GJ-55, and its price dropped dramatically.

So now it’s fast, reliable, sturdy, ugly, and incredibly cheap.
