The Folly is the titular vessel in the Tales of the Folly series, written by Allen Fesler.

She is a privately-owned heavily-customized bulk container transport, made up of parts and segments from a dozen other starships, and every race in Stellar Federation space.  The ship has four bridges and multiple warp cores.

The Folly's design is basically a central shaft, just over 2 kilometers in length, with ports for multiple strap-on cargo pods.  The 4 warp engines (in 2 nacelles) are about 2/3rds of the way toward the rear, and two 380-meter diameter spherical detachable space stations form the front.  At one point, the vessel was named the Pogo Stick, in reference to what it resembles.

Her enigmatic and long-lived captain, a human named Neal Foster (who is eventually transformed into Chakat Red), is famous/infamous for being a brilliant engineer and escape artist, friend to several Rakshani Deities, rescuer of lost children of all species, catalyst for peace between Earth and Raksha, assistant in the creation of chakats... and the list goes on and on.

The ship is host to the sapient A.I. Tess, which is a bit of a smart-ass, but a loyal companion and Neal's right hand assistant and protector.
