The hermes is a general duty transport vessel, and can be seen carrying everything from troops to fresh fruits. These ships come in both "Smart" and "Dumb" varieties. The "Smart" ships have sentience, and are able to both pilot and make decisions for themselves. Some of them even talk back. These vessels are generally confined to the military, although some have found their way into the private sector. The "Dumb" ships lack sentience, instead using rudimentary intelligence. They are capable of piloting themselves, but lack the inginuity that sentient vessels have. Unfortunately, because of its organic nature, the Hermes cannot carry certain cargoes.
