Survey Vessel by Orpheus7 Survey Vessel by Orpheus7
Survey vessels are used by corporations to find mineral deposits on unsurveyed worlds and to locate possible sites for mining bases. Carrying a suite of highly advanced probes and scanners along with a crew of scientists, they are able to quickly and accurately survey uncharted regions of space and their trans-skein drives allow them to venture far beyond the rim.

Survey vessels carry several survey pods that can be manned or unmanned and although they have no offensive weapons, they do carry defensive weapons - rather using their speed to get out of trouble.

I love it!

What's all that space on the back? Is it cargo space?

No, it's just space between the wings, which include one of the ship's experimental drive systems. Thanks for the comment.

Love the shape. Do you have story or world that your ships exist in? Or do you make up the descriptions as u go?

Thanks for the comment. I have a story of sorts - more along the lines of a setting. I hope to do some serious work on it in the future and really flesh it out. The plan is to write a novel or novel series. Thanks again.
