Much like the crew that operated it, the Botany Bay is a relic from humanity’s distant past. Built on Earth in the late 20th century, it was intended to be humanity’s foray into deep space exploration.

The vessel’s engines utilized revolutionary nuclear fission technology that was believed to be a completely self-sufficient energy source and its X-25 network array could gather data at an astounding rate.
