Due to popular demand The GalTech Industries Corporation proudly announces the release of the Fireball (Available as both a player and NPC ship). This ship is the fourth in a series of ships from classic Sci-Fi TV programmes.

The ship pictured below is the standard player model however the OXP incorporates some additional ship textures. Further information is available in the ship’s Wiki page (Just follow the link to my OXPs in my signature strip below).

EDIT - Updated version V1.01 uploaded which corrects the ship price and adds fuel scoops to the standard equipment for the player version.

Download it here or via my Wiki page https://www.box.com/s/fzh530my34htijhqxk9f

The Fireball has been developed with versatility in mind. This multi-functional vessel is able to offer a combination of cargo carrying capacity and passenger transport capabilities whilst retaining above average combat characteristics.

Produced at the shipyards of the GalTech Industries Corporation in the Ceesxe, Gerete and Edle systems the ship has quickly established itself as a commercial success.

Though the standard model is offered with a basic level of equipment the ‘future-proof’ design approach caters for a full range of additional upgrades.

It is however the hi-tech escape module, (see the ship's Wiki page), which differentiates this ship from many others. Rather than providing the option to fit the ship with an escape pod and hope for a safe return to the nearest station the front section of the main ship, nicknamed the Junior, is automatically jettisoned just before the point of destruction.

The Junior, rather than being a slow unarmed pod, features front and rear lasers along with a respectable turn of speed and maneuverability. This may not be sufficient to outgun most attacking pirates but is intended to provide the ship’s crew with a much increased chance of survival.

For full details of this ship and a picture of the Junior see my Wiki page (Click on the link in my signature strip).

This has always been one of my favourite ships, and you've done a brilliant job of it. Very nice indeed. :)

This OXP has been updated to version V1.01 (Price corrected and fuel scoops added to the standard equipment for player ships). :oops:

WOOHOO! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Looks gorgeous!

(wonders if, on the odd chance that the main fuselage is somehow not destroyed after Junior is jettisoned, if it would be possible to re-connect later.. Smivs might be the man gourd to take this up with)

:shock:
Yes! :mrgreen:
Nice solution to the escape pod problem. :D

(wonders if there maybe a problem with NPCs jettisoning the escape pod before the ship is destroyed... :?: )

Fireball XL-5 - Age is a state of mind.

Not in my Ooniverse as it is outside the realm of my chosen canon but the memories that came flooding back when that ship was beheld by my ancient eyes makes it worth commenting on. Can it be that those Gerry and Sylvia Anderson marionette shows from way back when actually bring a memorial tear to mine eyes? Yes it can be so. It is a good thing to have good memories of the past. Especially when the Spectrum is Green.

Thread Necromancy is not a habit for me but after following a series of links to this thread resistance became futile.
