Re: 22nd century star clipper...

Clipper is a good name for it. A very large impulse section. That doesn't have to mean primitive though.

A ship with a rudimentary warp drive--maybe a slower nacelle with really great long life--is good for moving a ship to a system---where it spends most of its useful life. There---a big impulse drive and lots of fuel allows a ship to remain in-system, perhaps on a semi-permanent basis.
