The BIG DAMN ‘VERSE proudly welcomes its fourth boat to the Black!!!!

(…drum roll Mr. Jonsey…)

Congratulations to the Hippocrates II Commanded by Dr. Chee (Ertia to us here at the BDV)!!!

I’ll leave the majority of the explanation to Ertia, but here are some of the basics.

Ertia’s blurb:

The Hippocrates II is a non-Alliance Search & Rescue craft dispatched from the Medic Academy on Osiris (think the Red Cross with a splash of the marines from Aliens). Her primary mission is research: plagues, terra-forming problems, etc. Secondary mission would be providing aid in emergency situations, rendering medical aid after oh, things like Reaver attacks, mining cave-ins, etc.

My blurb:

If bad gos se is happening anywhere in the ‘Verse, The Hippocrates II will be there.

Congratulations to Ertia and The Hippocrates II !!!!

STAY TUNED FOR ROLE-PLAYING POSITIONS !!!!


A special thanks to all of you who applied, and remember, stay frosty!! ;)

So, ya wanna hear more about our new shiP? (I just love the way Simon says shiP, don't you?)

I'm working on graphics now and will hopefully at least have some diagrams up tonight.

A mercy ship, The Hippocrates 2 has no weapons, except for standard tranquilizer guns for veterinary emergencies (Ever tried tranq-ing a sturgeon with fish-fungus?), and any weapons individual amongst the crew. She is liased with MedicAd Osiris, which means some funding from Blue Sun Pharmaceuticals.

Her primary mission is research: plagues, terra-forming problems, etc. Secondary mission would be providing aid in emergency situations, rendering medical aid after oh, things like Reaver attacks, mining cave-ins, etc.

:)
Keeping in mind that graphics are NOT my strong point- here, thanks to DOGA Animator and some creative cut & paste, is the HII.

Front View showing Dolphins. Just pretend you can see our little blue and white sigil there on either side of the cockpite windows and the med-symbol on her roof.

(Posted Image)

Side View, no Dolphins

(Posted Image)

There should be extending feet in front and back, under the bracers, and there are two jet thrust-engines under each wing.

There are airlocks on both sides near wings, and one large cargo-bay entrance beneath the bridge.

The graphics may not look great, but they're functional. Also, I claim one of the upper deck DL rooms next to the engine room-the quicker, the better.

Thank you, Marcus, and yes, I was.

She's kind of part the rescue ship that we see in Serenity, and part "The Brutus" from the pilot, (Only sleeker and newer, of course. ;) I wanted the size of The Brutus, but I wanted her to hail back to earlier R&R ships somewhat.

What makes her go:
(Ask Tydus, folks! If it doesn't have a heart, lungs, and a nervous system, it's not my ballywick. :D )

2 main engines- not exactly small;
Engines are Class A, BlueTech Model T434-10-C

2 propulsion engines for liftoff and navigation under the wings

Engine room: Front View as if looking in through the main-body of the ship.

I figure all the rooms have toilet & sink similar to what we see Mal using on Serenity. Or else we just pee into space...

Gads! Okay, I'll do a standard single bunk first, THEN figure out where the laundry is. ;)
