The Tetrian is a class 1 prototype for interstellar deep sea exploration. Built to withstand the challenging environments of both deep space and seas ranging from liquid methane to familiar water. The Tetrian is tasked with charting aquatic planets for extractable mineral and gas deposits. Preliminary testing on Titan have show the possible potential for this new class of exploratory vehicle/.
About this creation


Designed for extended expeditions, the Tetrian supports a crew of 3 for up to 6 months. Two rear mounted nacelles house the sublight drives, which, undersized for the bulk of the Tetrian provide enough thrust to get it to its destination. Far more respectable is its warp capability, no expense was spared to impart a range rivaling much larger vessels.



Once submerged the Tetrian is maneuvered with a series of control surfaces and thrust is provided by the internal worm drive which, while slow to accelerate, can travel near the speed of sound in just about any liquid.

Unfortunately, I'm not getting many pics to come through for this MOC. But the two that loaded for me show some pretty good stuff. I like your color scheme. It looks like your collection resembles my own. I like how you kept everything tight and compact on this MOC. Nice work.

I think some kind of interior would be awesome in front after those windows, it would be the finishing touch. You should try an SNOT bottom, that would be VERY cool! :D

Quoting Ced The Clever Lol, I should clarify, all of the contrasting angles remind me of a muscle, not the shape.
That's a pretty apt description. It needs a bit of work, but I like the general design so I'll probably come back to it after I get a little better at general design.

Nice work, really interesting design. I like the shape, reminds me a flexing muscle maybe? Anyway, keep it up.
