Star Wars: Life on the Scrap Heap
Starship Operating Costs
These vary from spaceport to spaceport, but most spaceport Standard class or larger charge 50 credits per day. A busy Imperial Class spaceport might charge 150 credits a day.
Standard Maintenance and Restocking
Standard restock includes replenishment for all fluids – water, lubricants, coolants and oxygen. Also included are basic proteins for autochefs, but not luxury items like fresh food or liquor.
Cost is a flat fee depending on the total crew and passenger capacity of the ship times the "consumables" in days (10 x Total capacity x Consumables)
Spaceports are equipped with fusion generators that recharge fuel cells. At the slowest rate of charge, this costs next to nothing, but if called upon to recharge quickly, the costs increase rapidly. The following costs reflects most Standard Class star ports. It is likely to be cheaper at better class ports and more expensive at more primitive ports:
Charging Rate – Cost per Cell
Trickle (1 cell/day) – 5 credits
Standard (1 cell/hour) – 10 credits
Fast (4 cells/hour) – 50 credits
Emergency (20 cells/hour) – 500 credits
Most stock light freighters are equipped with 50 fuel cells. Additional Fuel Cells: 500 credits each. One cell of fuel is used for:
* Entering Hyperspace
* Six hours in Hyperspace
* One month realspace operation
* One hour combat maneuvers
* One hour atmospheric flight

After every twenty hyperspace jumps, the ship should have a complete overhaul and tune-up, with certain components replaced. Cost: 1,000 credits (GM discretion as to what effects failure to maintain the engines might be, perhaps a 3% chance of hyperdrive malfunction for every subsequent jump).
