The HGA-220 was first produced as the "Pegasus"-class, but common use has anointed it with the altogether more humble "Mudskipper". This tough little ship has been a mainstay in civilian transport for backwater colonies for centuries, and although not pretty, the rugged construction simplifies maintenance while the generous bay doors allow for great versatility in application. Much of the Mudskipper's image plays to somewhat unlikely uses, such as moving extremely potent-looking industrial turbines, or an enduring holovid sequence featuring a Mudskipper transporting a herd of bovines to a picturesque arid-terraform.
Most commonly used as an interplanetary ferry, the Mudskipper is indeed interstellar-capable. The ship has no built-in shield generator and so must rely on its durable - for a civilian craft - armour to protect the passengers and cargo from the elements of space travel and its maneuvering thrusters to avoid fast-moving obstacles. There is little hope for the Mudskipper in combat, but it is generally equipped with a rear-facing turret to foil attacks by the ever-popular Salamander missile.
Quite a useful early logistics pickup for small fleets, particularly those that are mostly not traveling through hyperspace due to its minimal purchase & maintenance costs for its cargo space, although fuel efficiency is a little low. Not to be confused with its significantly different, retrofitted cousin Mudskipper Mk.II.
