The USS Miranda is the result of probably the only wide-spread privately funded space program that would ever exist. There’s a carefully maintained dived between the ’waved systems (drive, enviro, navigation) and the pure hardtech (astronomy, mainly), especially in the computers. Serious Science has no room for waving hands.

The ship is best known for its discovery of the first known extraterrestrial artifact, the so-called "Squidleighs' beacon," during its first five-year exploration mission.

Known Vehicle Quirks

  • Its five-year mission... The Miranda has a sixty-month limit on its fuel supply, which can only be replenished in the Sol system. Other consumables need to be replaced more frequently, but can be scavenged from comets and gas giants.


The Miranda discovered the Squidleighs' automated beacon in 12-12-2012.
