The Cloudskimmer, a YU-410 transport
Deck plans for the Cloudskimmer

The Cloudskimmer is a freighter owned by Binary Transports, Inc., a transport company that operates out of Jolus on Zebulon Beta in the Vargis Tau System. The ship is named in honor of the late Korinth Cloudskimmer. Korinth was the only ally Binary Transports could find when they confronted the Pirates of Zebulon. Though the pirates were finally defeated, Korinth died in the process. In honor of that bravery Binary Transports did several things, including naming their next ship after their lost ally.

The ship is crewed by two of the unlikely heroes of the battle against the pirates, Tango and Whiskey
