A question to the community:

Which ships would be best to be used by a representative (diplomat ?) of a government for the visit to another system ? Which government type would prefer which class of ship ?

Personally I intended first to use a Ophidian Class Yacht or a Commissar Limousine but I am very curious what other ideas/opinions will pop up. :wink:

A couple of suggestions from the Classic Ships stable.

For ultimate luxury for a small diplomatic mission, the beautiful Mussurana

or maybe something a bit bigger (a space-faring AirForce One?) like the Python ET special which with suitable mods could be a veritable mobile embassy.

Thank you for your suggestions.

@Smivs:
While I have the Mussurana installed for long time I totally forgot about this ship, indeed it would fit great for this purpose.

@Norby:
Great ideas, I admit I never had a look at Executive SpaceWays OXP or at the Galaxy Liner so I guess now is the time for it.

Not strictly matching your criteria (see below) but maybe suitable for the more dangerous systems would be the Asp MkII.
According to the original elite manual...

Intended for reconnaissance and the transport of high-ranking military personnel from combat

Could be approriate with a few escorts.

Good thought, I was planing to use the Asp Mark II as an escort but thanks to gsagostinho's Texture Pack: Asp Mk II there are plenty of appearances to chose from, so using it as main craft for some systems makes much sense.
