Alpha Sigma 3 was a planet with abundant oil producing bacteria, so successful was this life form that after millions of years the planet was covered in huge lakes and seas of oil. Unfortunately the planet was hit by a massive meteorite that smashed it to pieces.
Humanity arrived hundreds of thousands of years later and discovered the seas of oil had frozen into asteroids of all sizes made almost entirely of crude oil.
Soon the petroleum companies arrived, refineries were set up on a nearby Mars like planet and the mining of the asteroids began!
This is a delivery truck for refined space oil products. It brings the pollution to your planet and delivers it to your neighbourhood. Humanity: Terra-forming by greenhouse gases since 1750!
No shell didn't pay me. I just got fed up with only doing Octan space-oil ships and fancied a change. These bricks all date back to the 1970's and 80's when LEGO was making Shell petrol stations in it's Town line.
Let me say that is another brilliant retro design. For me though, it's too small to deliever fuel...it could probably use up that amont of fuel in the time it gets to it's destination. Still a nice build, 4/5.
AND don't forget Chris there will be armies to coerce and intimidate races to give up their precious resources! Great ship Marky Mark. The cockpit and gangplanks are a real standout. HAIL CORPORATIONS!!
