It is rumored that when the first "Mammoth" was in development, the CEO of its manufacturer would visit the complex housing the ship's design team every day and say "Its too small, it’s just too small," and every day, they would increase the ships proportions. They later learned, only after the ship went into production, he was talking about the building, and not the ship design. In the end, what they ended up with was a cargo ship that dwarfed the mighty Star Destroyers of the Empire. The Mammoth has a downright cavernous cargo hold, one that could arguably carry enough raw materials to build the infrastructure of an entire country. If the ship were equipped with a large enough opening, it could conceal in itself the flagship of the Black Sun fleet, the Darkstar Battleship, or four of the Hapes' Nova Battle Cruisers. The ship is, however, an easy target for raiders and pirates. It is slow, carries no weapons of its own and has no docking bay for support vessels.
