    The Prosperity-class Customs Cruiser is designed to take on pirates, common planetary defence actions, and customs duties. While it is cannon fodder against the Imperial Navy's mighty vessels of war, and is not an exceptional combat ship, it remains in widespread use amongst the planets of the Elrood Sector. Each of the planet Elrood (sector capital)'s five Imperial-class starports are assigned one of these cruisers, and several cloud cars. The remaining ships are deployed for patrol and outer orbit customs inspection duties. In all, Elrood commands two dozen of these vessels.
