Illustrator: Scott W. Bell / Starship Dynamics
In the mid-21st century, Curtiss/Supermarine Aerospace was contracted to build an experimental test bed for UNSF to perfect various emerging space system technologies. Licensed from the immensely successful Boeing DY series, the DY-255NX design is a branch in the DY development series which has performed its duties with little publicity but with steadfast reliability. Though limited in production to a few test units, the 255 model appeared through the mid-21st century in a number of configurations. It is depicted here in the configuration used to test the design of the first-generation fusion impulse drive. Once placed into production, this drive revolutionized interplanetary spaceflight, reducing transit time between worlds from months to days.
