Albus Tell is the main support ship for the Tell team on the 2085 Terra Prix. It’s over a quarter mile long (550m), with four hemispherical EMP (electro-magnetic Pulse) thrust turbines. It has a crew of 15 and can stay aloft indefinitely with its built in Solar skin.
The name, Albus Tell has a hidden meaning behind it and was chosen purposely. It comes from two words, Alps (white in Latin) and Tell from William Tell who was a legendary folk hero.
The Solar skin uses an organic polymer nano tube technology to boost the photovoltaic’s efficiency and allow it to be woven right in to the fibrous skin of the ship.
