Welcome to Solaris, traveller! This is a slower-than-light science fantasy set in our own solar system.
About Solaris | Guide to Solaris | Prologue
Spacecraft are vehicles that are constructed to travel the void of space. Spacecraft can include those built to move cargo, convey people, destroy other spacecraft, or conduct scientific experiments. They are often highly decorated, painted in bright colors or having daring swoops and flourishes. Although each planet tends to have its own preferred style, craft architects often borrow ideas and fashions from each other to create new designs.   Most spacecraft in Solaris are propelled using crystal engines that convert energy into momentum, rather than burning propellant. They remain limited by the speed of light c, and only a few very specialized spacecraft can reach significant fractions of c. Nevertheless, travel within the Sol System is typically much faster than the standards of our world.

I love the use of progress bars to give an overview of the ships, it's such a great way to show what their strengths and differences are.

Thank you! I was thinking of those comparisons in racing games and how neat they are, and thought they'd be cool for putting each of the craft in context.
