Free Ship
Any non-affiliated interplanetary or interstellar vessel; basically a mobile Free Zone. There are many different types of Free Ships, ranging from the most practical (Free Trader) to the most eccentric and quixotic. All have a proud tradition of non-alignment with corporate, political, or archailectic powers. Some pirates justify themselves as Free Ships, but all they do is give other Free Ships a bad name.
