Nanostasis Transport "Siesta"

Come to the US Titan Territory

This unassuming looking cylindrical craft is designed to transport up to five hundred workers in Nanostasis and minimal luggage between the inner system and the Titan colonies. Designed for low cost high speed transfers to the Deep Beyond it does exactly that. Using the latest long-endurance, low burn fusion drive it makes a typical journey from Earth to Titan in 127 days. All passengers travel in Nanostasis.

Its hull uses the latest 'smart' hull technology to minimise maintenance and increase reliability. With a living crew of four and numerous maintenance bots most aspects of the ship are totally automated. The humans are there purely in a supervisory mode for added safety. The Nanostasis Pods are continually monitored. There are two surgical bays and spare cabin space in the exceedingly unlikely event that emergency Nanostasis resuscitation is required.
