Design and Function Edit
The normal use of the quickships was for transporting minerals to Luna or other facilities in the Sol System. The quickships were normally tagged in a unique way in order to identify which family, clan, or corporation the transport belonged to, in order to dole out payment to the right people.
Earth Unaware Edit
Victor Delgado once used a quickship to transport himself to warn Earth of the Formics. He modified the quickship with extra room and supplies along with protection to use a transport to Luna. Earlier on, Victor had also modified the quickship for carrying rescue supplies for exploring the wreckage of a Italian mining family destroyed by the Formics.
