Official descriptionEdit

Banu traders are renowned for their merchant prowess, traveling the spacelanes and trading with everyone from humans to the Vanduul! Their sturdy, dedicated trading ships are prized beyond all other transports, sometimes passing from generation to generation of Banu. Banu technology offers players a completely different way of experiencing their universe.[3]

NOTE: The Merchantman has been described as being adaptable into a fast, armored smuggling ship capable of running blockades and escaping authorities.[4]

The Merchantman is a promised feature of the $27 million crowdfunding goal.[3]

Developer updatesEdit

One of the things that we want to do with the Banu trader is that there is a whole receiving room in it, and you could maybe collect items in different parts of the galaxy, and then maybe fly around and sell them in other parts [...]

–Chris Roberts on April 23, 2014[5]

Like I mentioned before, we had the Banu trader with the receiving room and I [think] it would be cool for a player that makes it their business to go to the corners of the galaxy and get, like, kind of really interesting items and sort of fly around and sell [them] to other players. You know, kind of, much like a traveling bazaar.

–Chris Roberts on April 23, 2014[6]

During the 2016 CitizenCon Presentation, The Banu Merchantman has been confirmed to be flyable in Alpha update 3.3. [7]
