Description
The Commercial Towing Vessel NOSTROMO was an M-Class starfreighter property of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, hauling an enormous (some 1.5 miles in length) ore refinery and 20 million tons of raw ore, weighing many times the mass of the Nostromo. The ship itself is still substantial, over 60,000 metric tons and almost 245 metres (800 feet) long, including three decks, four holds, storages, engines, and it´s escape ship, the Narcissus. The ship is fitted with a self-destruct system (for instances involving military cargo that could be hijacked) and separates itself from the ore refinery platform via an umbilical detachment system. The interior features a large 'space jockey' cockpit for all crew piloting functions, a medical bay, dining area, central computer room MU-TH-R 182 model 2.1 terabyte AI Mainframe (called "Mother" by the crew), engineering areas, a hypersleep chamber and a labyrinthine network of connecting corridors. Basic Lockheed CM 88B Bison transporter frame modified and fitted with a Yutani T7A NLS Stellar Drive. The original Saturn J3000 engines have been replaced by 2 Rolls Royce N66 Cyclone Thrust Tunnels with bi-polar vectoring for mid line lift function. Each power plant developing 7,250,000 tons thrust (14,500,000,000 pounds) giving a high impulse total of 14,460,000 tons. The Nostromo self-destroyed on the course returning to Earth from Thedus after taking off from LV426. #Alien #Aliens #Ash #Battlecruise #Brett #Cargo_ship #colonial_marines #Dallas #Films #Kane #Lambert #movies #Nostromo #Ripley #Ron_Cobb #SciFi #soldiers #space #Spaceship #Starship #Sulaco #Syd_Mead #war #WeylandYutani
