BACKGROUND TYPE “B” RESCUE EAGLE
The Eagle is one of several classes of interplanetary spacecraft
(others include the Hawk warships, Swift support vessels, and
deep space probes), originally authorized by the international
Lunar Finance Commission and constructed by the Engineering
and Technics section of Moonbase Alpha using materials and
components either shipped from Earth or manufactured on the
Moon. Completely modular, the crafts are divided into three basic
MOONBASE sections: the command module, the service pod, and the super-
structure - containing the landing gear, main fuel tanks and
boosters. Eagles, standard reconnaissance craft for all extralunar
ALPHA activity, are powered by four nuclear fusion rockets and carry fuel
reserves for 48 hours of flight. Artificial gravity force fields built
into the Eagle enable it to accelerate up to .15% of the speed of
TECHNICAL light, giving it a maximum range (with extra fuel reserves) of
several light-days. The Eagle also has the capability to enter the
atmosphere of a normal gravity planet, land (using its chemically-
READOUT fueled landing rockets), and return to Alpha. Although the Eagle
was not designed as a military vessel, it carries as standard
equipment a laser gun and an arsenal of space-to-space
missiles.
PAGE 4: PODS & Eagles are piloted by an astronaut with the official designation of
Eagle Pilot and a rank of no less than Captain. The pilot receives
RESCUE EAGLE his orders directly from Mission Control, and employs both the
onboard and Alpha computer systems for guidance, astronaviga-
tion, and interpretation of sensor data. The right seat in the Eagle
cockpit is usually occupied by the copilot, although the Eagle can
normally be flown by a single operator. In an emergency, when
both pilots are incapacitated, an Eagle may be operated from a
slave-station in Command Center.
Eagles are housed and serviced in the mammoth hanger com-

plexes directly beneath the four main launch pads. A crew of
Eagle engineers is responsible for repairing or replacing
damaged components, and maintaining the flight-ready condition.
Alpha supports a fleet of twelve Transporter Eagles, twenty-six
Reconnaissance Freighters, and two Rescue Eagles on 24-hour
alert status.
In the event of Operation Exodus - the immediate and complete
evacuation of Moonbase Alpha on the personal order of Moon-
base Commander - all available Eagles are employed to trans-
port colonists and supplies from Alpha to a habitable planetary
environment. Until such time, the Eagle remains the workhorse of
Moonbase Alpha - as indispensable to the 311 men and women
of Alpha as the Conestoga wagon was to the settlers of
America’s western frontier.
TYPES OF EAGLES USED BY MOONBASE ALPHA
TRANSPORTER EAGLES
Transporter Eagles, fitted with the standard passenger pod, can normally
accommodate eight passengers in addition to the pilot and copilot. Under
emergency conditions, such as the total evacuation of the Moonbase,
they can carry up to twelve passengers and additional water and provi-
sions for extended habitation. Transporter Eagles are used for missions
TYPE “A” on the lunar surface, in lunar orbit, and in interstellar space in the general
MOONBASE TRANSPORT POD vicinity of Moonbase; or on routine planetary landings when no hostile
elements are anticipated and the contact team deems special laboratory
or environmental equipment unnecessary.
ALPHA RECONNAISSANCE EAGLES

TECHNICAL TYPE “B”


Although the recon pods look similar to the transporter pods on the
outside, they are equipped with various types of sensory devices for ex-
ploratory missions. The recon pods also contain a computer that can

READOUT RESCUE POD either be tied into Alpha’s master computer or work self-sufficiently.

RESCUE EAGLES
Rescue Eagles are Transporters that have been fitted with a special
PAGE 5: EAGLE passenger pod, identified by bold red stripes on the exterior. These are
adapted for field diagnosis and treatment of injury or disease that may be
PODS & VARIANTS encountered on a planet’s surface or in deep space. Manned by medical
personnel, Rescue Eagles are equipped with mobile beds, patient-
monitor units, and facilities for field surgery.
TYPE “C” LABORATORY POD
FREIGHTER EAGLES
The cargo pod, identical to the passenger pod in configuration, is used for
transporting supplies and equipment to exploration teams on a planet’s
surface, and for the return of native elements essential to Alpha’s environ-
COPYRIGHT 2007 LAWRENCE MILLER mental and reprocessing systems. Freighters can also be used for refuel-
ing other Eagles as space-borne tankers, transporting additional fuel to
Eagles with insufficient reserves to return to Alpha.
