The poor, sluggish, pug-ugly Terrapin is the mainstay of the galactic freight-hauling fleet. It is the classic example of form following function -- you need to design a ship to haul 125 tons of cargo as cheaply as possible, you end up with the Terrapin. It is one of the slowest ships that exists in the known galaxy and the butt of jokes of many star captains.

The much-maligned Terrapin may not be the picture of speed and elegance, but it makes an economical escort ship for commodity traders.

Believe it or not, there are pirates who fly this ship. (Perhaps a Terrapin was all they could steal.) Should you see one flying the black flag, you can attempt to board and capture it, of course, but take care when you attack it -- the difference between disabling and destroying it is minimal due to its relatively poor armour.
