The Freelancer is the base model of the Freelancer variants produced by Musashi Industrial & Starflight Concern, the Freelancer features design elements of Xi'an technology.

MISC is known for producing efficient, modular, middle-of-the-road ships, primarily transports of different sizes. Freelancers are used as long haul merchant ships by major corporations, but they are just as frequently repurposed as dedicated exploration vessels by independent captains who want to operate on the fringes of the galaxy. Don’t let some of the alien technology in the cockpit surprise you: the Freelancer’s design owes several of its internal systems to a lend-lease deal with the Xi'an.[1][2]

The Freelancer follows the MiSC-HI concept of extreme modularity on a smaller, more distinctive hull. Initially marketed as an efficient long-haul merchant ship for private enterprises, the Freelancer quickly became the ship of choice for dedicated explorers. With the range of a transport plus room to install advanced scanning and jump technology, Freelancers have enabled their captains to chart a number of new jump points in recent years. With a noted engine upgrade capacity and the ability to maneuver better than any other dedicated transport ship, it is no wonder the Freelancer’s roles continue to expand.

It can also be said of the Freelancer that it has inspired more debate than any other spacecraft on the market. Detractors claim the hull is unattractive, that the cockpit’s field of view is unnecessarily limiting and that on paper it is not suited to the roles it has expanded to fill. Freelancer’s supporters, however, are equally dedicated to the ship. They argue vehemently that the ship is the secret of their business success: that rare cost-effective ship that fulfills many of the same roles as the RSI Constellation, but requiring far fewer crew.

In some sense, the Freelancer image has begun to appear at odds with that of MISC itself: dashing space captains charting new frontiers on a wing and a prayer versus heavily organized corporate governance. The truth is, the Freelancer project would not exist without that governance. Every aspect that makes the design popular for independent pilots was carefully researched, analyzed, tested and produced. From the optimal radar package placement to the vacuumform cupholders, the components of the Freelancer went through hundreds of thousands of man hours in an effort to produce a design that comes together seamlessly.[3]
