The Starbound Pathfinder

   The Starbound Pathfinder is humanity's first full-scale interstellar craft capable of FTL. Owned and operated by the Indippon company, the starship is commanded by a corporate team and crewed by an an international team as organized by the Pathfinder Accord.

   The primary signatories of the Pathfinder Accord are all members of space-capable nations and corporations and includes a second group of entities with lesser influence who made noteworthy contributions to mankind's advances beyond Earth's surface. Nominally, the pact ensures that all of the world has a voice in one of the greatest advances in space exploration while the barely concealed truth is that Indippon maintains a strong grip on the reins in this endeavor.

   The ship itself is an inelegant but efficient amalgamation of several components long vetted by sustained habitats in Earth's orbit. The primary hull, dubbed Alpha Hull, measures approximately 173 meters long and as a beam of 25 meters. It houses the ship's three tokamak reactors as well as main engineering and a secondary bridge.
