The two giant electric coil towers stood proud of the 4-storey building that occupied the central position on the gunship Volans Terrorum. She was 700 feet long and 150 feet wide. Her engine could have powered a small city. Metal cage-corridors sprawled like a spider across the decks to stop the Tesla lightning from killing the crew who needed to make their way over the decks. Especially for this trip the loading bay had been enlarged and the super structure strengthened to be able to winch their captured load aboard. Its compliment of crew was 500 including officers and men. It had entertainment facilities, shops, radio communications and stores to last for six months. There were fourteen energy cannons on each side just below deck and two large plasma cannons fore and aft. The Volans Terrorum could fire all of her guns non-stop for 24 hours before she ran out of energy.
