Octan Empress
Microscale Space Octan oil tanker.
About this creation
The Octan Empress, a tanker carrying petroleum from the legendary Oil Asteriods of Alpha Sigma B. It also carries crew for restaffing the Oil Platforms. Octan: terraforming through greenhouse effect, one planet at a time!

Yep. Oil Asteriods of Alpha Sigma B. Imagine a world where oil producing bacteria go out of control, making entire oceans of oil for millions of years. Then an unlucky meteorite or comet impact smashes the planet to bits, and there you go: oil asteriods.

Or you could try to figure out a better reason for an oil tanker in space!

Built: 2006
Current Status: Intact

   It's big, but little...



Enlarge image
   From the side it looks overweight.



Enlarge image
   The engines are separated from the main hull so that in the event of a malfunction either the expensive engines can be salvaged or the highly trained crew rescued. No sense in losing them both!

   From behind you can see the two life-raft escape craft in orange.

   Doesn't look so fat from out here...

   Underside, lots of little boosters!

   Coming in to land. Yes, land! This is a working ship after all.

   The aerial on the front? No idea. Maybe it's for impaling space-whales - not renowned for their environmental policies are Octan-Space.

   The captains launch.

   Launching.

   Cute!

   Life-raft out.

   The Captain got a better ship of course.
