Eve Online Spreads the Holiday Cheer with the Zephyr

Posted Wed, Dec 16, 2009 by Martuk

Many MMOGs are spreading the holiday cheer and CCP isn't about to be a Grinch. Today the developers of Eve Online announced they would be giving a little something back to the community for the holiday season with the Zephyr, a unique starship design that relies almost entirely on solar winds for sublight propulsion. This new ship is built for exploration of the uncharted expanses of wormhole space. This ship comes equipped with a built in probe launcher (for wormholes) and its design also makes it difficult to detect for hostile ships. Click here to learn more about the Zephyr and how you can claim one for your own.

The Zephyr is a unique starship design, relying almost entirely on solar winds for sublight propulsion. Super-light sails allow it to ride the torrents of photons streaming through space, and its barebones construction gives it a tiny sensor footprint and almost negligible mass. Originally conceived by the ascetic Intaki polymath Valsas en Dilat as a demonstration of minimalist starship design, it was never intended as a commercial venture. The recent discovery of the uncharted Sleeper Territories and their myriad wormholes has brought the Zephyr new attention - its mass makes it an ideal exploration vessel. Valsas remains adamant that the Zephyr never sees mass production, but at the close of YC111 he authorized the Intaki Syndicate to distribute a single hull, paired to a specialized Prototype Iris Probe Launcher, to every registered capsuleer.
