The ship types presented here are general overviews of different types of military spacecraft, rough specification ranges, and typical roles that each ship fills.
The fusion reactor developed by the Oppenheimer Project was based on the tokamak design created by pysicists in the U.S.S.R. during the mid 20th century.
After the development of stable fusion reactors in 2061, development of fusion propulsion for spacecraft was developed alongside Earthbound fusion power plants.
To avoid the problems of having a crew spending what might be a decade on a ship with nothing to do, systems of chemically induced hibernation were developed.
In 2247 an international coalition of physicists and engineers developed from hypothesis to tested theory a method by which mankind could create their own wormholes.
Faster than light (FTL) travel in the Astra Nautica universe is achieved by using wormholes as a shortcut to travel from one point in space to another.
Humanities first colony outside of the solar system is founded on Proxima Centauri B by the crew of the UNS Icarus.
