Silver Age Beyond
Starship - Luxian Chrysalis Pod
The Chrysalis pod is utilized by the Luxian to facilitate singular interstellar travel. It is 2 meters long and hollowly designed to absorb scanning technologies. It is a projectile vessel, generally launched and allowed to coast to its destination, though it is capable of independent navigation. Its design is such that it is able to cross the distances between stars, through Dark Energy, via its small, coasting nature. These ships have never been found in flight, always landed and partially in tact.
Once it arrives on a planet, the default Luxian humanoid scans the planet for the dominate species and utilizes the building materials of the ship to compose its body.
