In 3951, ISU (International Space Union, comprised of the US, Canada, and Europe) set out a requirement for a light scientific research ship capable of atmosphere travel and carrying at least 3 Survival Dome Generators for settlements. Of the designs submitted, the Boeing Aerospace/Lockheed Martin XFS-10 model was selected for its superior range and cargo facilities. Although small in diameter for its class, the ship is generally thicker than its counterparts allowing for greater cargo space. Some space is lost by keeping all drive systems internal, but this allows for easier servicing, thus eliminating the need for an airlock. The main cargo bay can carry four Dome Generators, or other equipment. It has a crew of 11 (Captain, First Mate, Science Officer, 2 Engineers, Medic, 3 Weapons officers, Navigator, and Communications Officer), and has room for additional passengers on the second deck. It is powered by 3 General Electric LD330 Light Drives, giving it a longer range than other ships in its class. It also has a Pulse Drive which eliminates the need for landing gear. Due to its size, it has no docking ring, and requires a hangar for loading/unloading in space. It has a second, smaller cargo bay without a crane that can carry a small External Exploration Vehicle (model coming soon). This model is very detailed and has full interiors. The boarding ramp and bay doors, along with annotations, and cutaways for easier viewing of the interior, can all be controlled by layers. #1950s #3951 #Atmosphere #Boeing #Canada #Colonization #Crew #Dome #Europe #Flying #Flying_Saucer #Forbidden_Planet #ISU #Light #Light_speed #Lockheed_Martin #Moon #People #Planet #Pulse_Drive #Robby #Robby_the_Robot #Robot #Saucer #SciFi #Science #Ship #Space #Space_ship #Space_Travel #Spaceship #Star_Trek #The_day_the_Earth_Stood_Sill #Travel #United_States #US #XFS10
