The Apollo is one of the first Fencraft that is a 1 to 1 copy of an existing space craft and uses the least possible amount of handwavium in its construction.

That means that it lacks most of the amities of common Fencraft, such as an independent navigation computer (outside an Apollo era computer that needs to be purpose programmed with Assembly prior to calculation), artificial gravity or modern digital communication (only high gain analogue radio).

While Command and Service Modules can separate, putting them back together is a work of a good day.

Known Vehicle Quirks:

Fly me to the moon: To unlock the full speed setting of the drive, the crew needs to play an original 1969 recording of 'Fly me to the Moon' by Frank Sinatra.


The Apollo has played a role in the following stories:
