Airbase: Epiphany

A Pecora class star freighter used for early Heirotus BTS tests. Presumed destroyed during a premature BTS discharge event in January 1968, though no wreckage was recovered.

Status upgraded to “missing” after captain and test navigator Mike West‘s brief appearance at Kolg Saerai Orbital (“Kaysoo”) in late 1968.

In The Dualist, the Epiphany appears buried up to its con tower in the Australian desert, in an advanced state of decay. While the ship is no longer spaceworthy, the Tacoma class biomagnetic reactor, communications suite, and computer system are still functional.
