Megellan Deep Space Exploration Vessel (DSEV-1)
The Megellan DSEV-1 spearheaded Mankind's foray into deep space, beyond our solar system. It was also credited with making first contact with mankind's first alien species and has since gone on to chart new sectors for colonization. Built with primitive jump drive technology, the DESV-1 achieves only a fraction of the speed current engines are accustomed to producing. Even as we speak, the DSEV-1 is still out there, dilligently pushing the boundaries of man's expansion into space, and beyond...
About this creation
Megellan DSEV-1:
Length: 301m
Width: 70m (main hull), 140m (fully deployed solar panels)
Mass: 105,000 t
Crew: 250
Propulsion: 1 x Venton Fusion Reactor powering 1 x non-vectoring thruster, with 2 electromagnetic manoeuvring rudders.
Life Support: Extensive suite of life support systems for deep space survival and xeno-environmental adaptation. 2 x Eco - Greenhouses for sustainable agriculture.
Armaments: Nil
Atmospheric Capability: Nil. Requires shuttle support for atmospheric entry.











One of the two Eco-Greenhouses located on peripheral rotating sections to provide agricultural food support for the crew, as well as maximum achievable gravity for plant growth. Rotating sections closer to the main hull receive considerably less gravity from rotation.

All this design complexity to achieve rotational gravity would have been obviated had the Megellan been launched a year later, when artificial gravity generators became technologically viable.


A rousing Homecoming for the Megellan after the conclusion of her third 5 year mission. Seen here with an escort of fleet vessels at the ceremony, Captain Delaware proudly hands the command over to her successor for her next 5 year misison after a six month refit and replenishment program.
