History

The Pegasus Tanker is designed to transport liquids and gases between locations. Most commonly this means hydrogen, water, and oxygen the three most critical items for most communities in space. Ceres used some of these to supply Mars and Luna with these materials when Earth did not. Several Colonies exported these same materials to Tantatlus and Ares which have limited habitative resources themselves.

The Pegasus itself is pretty simple. A small crew is able to maintain, direct, and load and unload the tanks in it. The command and control facilities are in the engineering section as is the crew quarters in the rear of the ship. The forward section consists of four canister sections and a locking mechanism to hold the canisters in place. It uses a pair of fusion torch drives and a linear FTL system for interstellar travel.
