Although not really because this ship was built before the U.E.G was formed. But it is because of this ship the U.E.G. was formed. This ship was built by the NASSA (North American States Space Administration) to be the first ship to leave our solar system. And it did so only by accident while engaging it’s engines an explosion ripped a hole in spce pulling the ship into friendly Ma’Angaan territory.
After floating nearly dead in space for 18 months a M’Aangan freighter found the ship and towed it back to the nearest inhabited world. Over several months the crew of the Columbus, still kept alive by their failing cryotubes are revived and their ship repared with the addition of Earths first FTL drive. This drive will become known as a jump engine.
The first use of this Jump engine will return the Columbus and her crew to Earth escorted by two Ships of the Royal M’Aangan Navy. Shortly after these incidents the United Earth Government is formed and the M’Aangan become it’s greatest ally.
I’m texturing this ship to be clean because I want to be a museum piece.
These are for anyone interested in knowing what the signs say on the back of the engineering section.
