UNSV Sagan

The UNSV Sagan was the first interstellar starcruiser of Humanity and the first ship of its class.   Immediately after promising tests of the Alcubierre Drive, United Nations of Earth issued a motion to the International Space Program to build the first interstellar spaceship for interstellar expeditions.   Construction began on October 4, 2025, thanks to revolutionary construction techniques, the skeleton of the ship was finished two months later, and the alcubierre drive was installed on January 2, 2026. Many private companies like BosoFar and Zafari have contributed to the construction of the Sagan.   Around the sixteenth of August in 2029, construction was finished, and so simulation tests and training courses were started. The sister ship, the UNSV Tyson, was also delivered around this time. A third ship, the UNSV Erasmus, was also under construction.   The Sagan held a celebratory tour through the Solar System before it went interstellar, with its destination being Alpha Centauri. Although, the Sagan never went to Alpha Centauri.   The alien board-computer sent the ship to Aldebaran, about 65 light years further. Due to this supposed technical error, Humanity made First Contact with the Serpentes, subsequently initiating the United Nations of Earth - Serpentes Empire war.   After the return of the Sagan a new, Human made board-computer was installed, without any alien code language.   Since the start of the war, the UNSV Sagan was conscripted to find allies and technologies for the defense of Earth, and while they have mostly succeeded, up to this day, the Sagan and it's heroic crew are presumably lost.   The Sagan was captaineerd by James Peerson
