Charon As the makers of the Charon, the Caldari State are generally credited with pioneering the freighter class. Recognizing the need for a massive transport vehicle as deep space installations constantly increase in number, they set about making the ultimate in efficient mass transport - and were soon followed by the other empires.

Regardless, the Charon still stands out as the benchmark by which the other freighters were measured. Its massive size and titanic cargo hold are rivalled by none.

The Charon is often used for scamming (its name at least). Players will spam a contract in one of the main trade hubs and hope someone will misread and accept the contract. Generally the contract offers Carbon and a bunch of General Freight Containers.
