Condor class in space 01

A Proton in civilian service used as an executive transport

The CT-6 Proton is a large Pinnace used to transfer 50 passengers or 20 metric tons of cargo between the surface of a planet and starships or space stations in orbit.  It has two large hydrogen-composite engines in the rear and variable-geometry wings that swing forward for landing and takeoff and sweep back for the high-speed climb towards the edge of the atmosphere.  Protons are manufactured on Minos by the Exedra-Bernoulli division of Exedra Enterprises.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Exedra Enterprises is a fictional megacorporation dreamed up by Martin way back in sixth grade, and the Proton was the name of a light civilian aircraft they manufactured.  The image comes from the Honor Harrington universe.
