I just noticed one of the NPC industry ships is called 'Trailer'. This is incorrect. A trailer does not have it's own means of propulsion. It 'trails' behind a powered vehicle that tows it. It's

from Websters:
"a large van or wagon drawn by an automobile, truck, or tractor, used especially in hauling freight by road. Compare full trailer, semitrailer."

Defining Hauling ships based on the propulsion methods they use might be inappropriate for space, so maybe they used common names of Hauling vehicles and re-defined them with rigorous definitions that represent not the propulsion methods they use, but the quantity of minerals they carry.

Since we primarily care about the loot it drops, can the English Police forgive eve for redefining the terms Hauler, Trailer, Convoy, and Carrier to signify the exact quantity of minerals in it?

Perhaps they could use a definition like:
Hauler: A ship that can carry 3.1 Million Trit, or a reduced amount of higher end minerals thats a function of mineral type.
Trailer = A ship that can carry 6.5 Million Trit, or a reduced amount of higher end minerals thats a function of mineral type.
Convoy = A ship that can carry 12.5 Million Trit, or a reduced amount of higher end minerals thats a function of mineral type.
Carrier =A ship that can carry 25 Million Trit, or a reduced amount of higher end minerals thats a function of mineral type.

Hmm... We should probably make sure Transporter, Bulker, Trucker, and Loader have similar rigorous definitions...

The "no one but you cares" section would be good.
