Narcissus 1.0

Narcissus 1.0



The Narcissus[2] was a modified Lockmart Starcub light shuttle[2] that served as one of two lifeboats[3] aboard the Weyland-Yutani commercial hauler USCSS Nostromo. Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley used the Narcissus to escape the destruction of its parent vessel in 2122, along with the ship's cat Jones.
Contents[show]
Overview

The Narcissus docked with the Nostromo.
The Narcissus weighed 48 metric tonnes. Its hull, measuring 16.3 meters in length, 19.7 meters wide and 7.5 meters in height, was constructed of conventional composite construction, with a ceramic and composite outer skin.[2] The single internal cabin offered 108 cubic meters of space, including numerous lockers and storage space for supplies and equipment. The shuttle was also equipped with a folding tricycle undercarriage, allowing it to set down on planetary bodies if required.[2]
As standard, the Narcissus was designed to carry a crew of three, including a pilot, co-pilot and science officer, although the interior could be easily modified to seat more crew members if necessary. For long duration travel, the shuttle contains two hypersleep capsules, although long-range interstellar transit is not the vessel's primary purpose.[2] When not in use, the Narcissus was stored in a docking module on the underside of the Nostromo adjacent to the ship's port engine nacelle; her sister shuttle, the Salmacis, was stored in the same position on the starboard side.[3]
Energy and propulsion
The Narcissus is powered by a 9gW microfusion reactor that drives two Newington A-24 rocket motors. These engines employ water as the reaction mass. Engine thrust can be variably vectored through two forward or four rearward thrust tunnels,[2] allowing the shuttle to move with equal speed in either direction; indeed, the Narcissus was designed to evacuate the Nostromo in reverse when used as an emergency escape vehicle.[4]
For interstellar travel, a Romberg 100C tachyon shunt can propel the Narcissus at low faster-than-light speeds. Fully fueled, the vessel has a range of 13 parsecs.[2]











History
Drifting in space

The Alien being incinerated.
When Ellen Ripley detonated the Nostromo's engines to destroy the ship and the Alien on board, she used the Narcissus to escape the blast zone. However, unknown to her the Alien had stowed away on board the shuttle as well, and she was confronted by the creature as she prepared to enter hypersleep. Ripley ultimately killed the Xenomorph when she opened the airlock, almost sucking it out into space, before shooting it with a harpoon gun (which ended up jammed in the ship's airlock door) and incinerating it in the shuttle's main rear engine outlets. With the creature destroyed, Ripley and Jones set a course for the frontier and went into hypersleep.
Unknown to Ripley, Ash had surreptitiously uploaded his AI consciousness to the Narcissus' mainframe before his physical body had been destroyed aboard the Nostromo, and he was now in control of the shuttle.[5] After drifting for thirty-seven years, he detected the distress call sent from the DMSO Marion and rerouted the Narcissus to intercept it, hoping to fulfill his mission to recover a Xenomorph specimen for Weyland-Yutani. His plan ultimately failed, while Ash's consciousness was finally wiped from the shuttle's memory banks, after which Ripley was set adrift aboard the Narcissus once again.
Recovery

The Narcissus being recovered.
The Narcissus would remain undetected for a further twenty years before a salvage crew discovered it through sheer luck. Jones and Ripley were sent to Gateway Station to recover from their excessively long period in hypersleep, while the Narcissus was studied extensively in the hope that it may shed some light on the Nostromo's disappearance. Evidence from this search was later used against Ripley during the tribunal into the destruction of the Nostromo.

The model is printed in A4 200 gr black and white
I will improve the model even more detail
