We present the latest of customizable airships designed by Panda Republic Co., a luxury flight company established in the Second Epoch "Flight of the Pandas" and the leading cruising ship manufacturer in Edenia. The V1745 has the same aerodynamic frame as its predecessors (the VXXXX line is renowned for its speed and stability), but features the latest Zero9D Booster technology. It can achieve flank speeds of over 140 knots (260 km/hr) and withstand gale winds of up 35 knots (65 km/hr approx. wind scale) with minimal turbulence. Navigation is also top-of-the-line Edenair Corp. Crystal Cruise (TM), with an upgraded 4G ITE receiver transmission system.
This ship was commissioned by AoHC early last year and stands as the first completed model of the V1745 line. Custom features include an expanded dormitory and housing facilities (enough to accomodate all of the students and most of the staff of the Academy), protective Eden warding, eight Eden hypercanons (four on each side), a few other design eccentricities like the sails, and a 50-year-extended-warranty.
As we of Panda Republic Co. like to say: Fly with style on the BNW Express!
"...and all the citizens of our colony. The binary sun is shining extra bright today, so don't forget to take UV pills for protection and keep your eyes off the horizon during the sunny parts of the day. Storms are bound to reach shores of Almagat XI and Sigur II cities at 11:15 AM, so be prepared for some heavy rain with a slight touch of ion lightnings. And now for the political news from Artemis Tau system..."
About 12 - 15 hrs. Stole the color spectrum from an awesome piece by Gary Tonge: ANTIFAN-REAL :
I was thinking about how creepy it would be if in the future, people start neglecting their real bodies to exclusively live in downloaded indistinguishably real simulations. There would be all kinds of interesting philosophical debates to have, and loads of conflicting opinions on the technology. It's an idea I might explore more, especially if people dig it.
