Culture ship; a General Contact Unit. A smallish multi-purpose exploration/diplomacy/espionage/combat ship used by Contact, the part of the Culture which is vaguely exciting (as opposed to Special Circumstances, which is very exciting). Typically staffed by about three dozen human and autonomous drone crew, but these are typically along as passengers, not drivers. The ship, like all Culture ships, is directed by a Mind.
