Built at Saskatoon yards, Saskatoon/Kukulcan 3132, Solomani Rim. This design is to engage in deep exploration. The modular cutters operated by the ship work the same way as they do for the Broadsword, right down to the times and work necessary to change out each module. For this reason, the usual module configuration used is the passenger module. At least two shuttles use this configuration at all times, to allow for any emergency that might arise. It is intended that, as the ship engages in its exploratory operations, it will use up its tonnage of stores, thus freeing up space for cargo acquired while the ship is engaged in its mission. Although a Solomani design, its use has spread far and wide; one such ship is allegedly being used by the government of Sacnoth, in the Sword Worlds/Spinward Marches area. In a recent design competition, the Kentucky Home was judged to be among the top two among the contenders.
