"Having a Q-ship is an excellent suggestion, Commander. A 'civilian' freighter, upgraded to military specs and sporting heavy armaments, that we can send out on independent runs to take small, weak targets, or employ as a 'pirate' that we can 'rescue' a target from. Perhaps a solo command for you?" he muses. "Don't get too excited, Roda, you have much yet to learn about command and there's no better place for you to learn than on this ship. But you'll also benefit from experience aboard a smaller vessel, and making decisions without having someone looking over your shoulder, so you will get your chance. You have my word on that."
He spends a few seconds entering a string of commands into his console, then puts a few spec sheets up on one of the display monitors. "In addition to a Gozanti, a smart choice by the way, Mister Dune should also look into the availability of other solid, and affordable, Corellian designs such as the YZ-775 medium transport and PB-950 patrol craft. The patrol ships are weak compared to the other two choices, and obsolete for their original purpose, but there are tens of thousands of them in use across the galaxy and I'm sure that one or more might be had quite cheaply. Something to keep in mind, at least. The 775 already mounts a Class One drive and a light turbolaser, so requires fewer upgrades to be combat-effective. But a Gozanti is considerably more cost-effective and I think would prove to be the best choice in the end.
"Mister Dune should focus on securing a Gozanti, keeping open the possibility of PB-950s or YZ-775s, in that order, as a fallback in case the first choice is unattainable. Make it happen, Commander. Dismissed."
