Starbug One in space.

Starbug One docked.

Starbug One is a long-range shuttlecraft from the Jupiter Mining Corporation ship Red Dwarf, refitted with an extremely powerful albeit semi-functional tachyon-powered drive that can periodically provide massive jumps through space. At 28.4 metres long, it is about the same length as a Federation Runabout, but three decks high. It is a bilious green colour and insectoid in shape. The JMC Red Dwarf originally had four of these useful vessels as well as a number of Blue Midget short-range shuttles.
