design by Pete Grey
The Zenon is inspired by new airfoil-type airship designs rolling off of design boards and CAD machines in the US, Britain and Germany:
The Zenon is actually rather small compared to actual designs (the closest being ATG's SkyCat 200). This particular design is constructed by a small company on the Avalar world of Nesturgi (Foreven 2128) and acts as an effective substitute for grav vehicles, which are in rather short supply. The design is only rated for a dense atmosphere, and its payload reflects that fact. Volcanically derive helium is cheaply abundant on Nesturgi, and makes LTA travel cost competitive against more expensive contra-grav alternatives. The version below is primarily intended for mixed passenger/cargo service between the world's small downports and outlying communities. Other versions include larger freight-only versions, long durations fusion powered commo and information relays, and surveillance and SAR versions in service with the Nesturgi Coast Guard.
