Pre-Production Blueprints

First Customer - GASECspaceliners

The Orisis Ferry is a large Megaship by GASECspaceliners. It is based on the basic Orisis hull. It is a large passenger carrier intended for longer distances and also for systems outside the spaceways.

Currently it is operated by Oo-Go which provides different trips and cruises along the 8 galaxies. The Orisis Carrier does not dock, it loads from within the Station Safety Zone.

Known Facts

The first testflight was a disaster. An asteroid that travelled through the Witchspace hole impacted the ship at Diso and the first ship was destroyed. (Read about it in DaddyHoggy's excellent story Lazarus). Later versions of the Orisis have some structural upgrades to prevent such disasters. Now the auto lifepod system ejects the passengers in case of disaster.
