At Verne Industries we have long been at the forefront of technology for our Queen and country. Her Majesty has now set her gaze firmly set upon the moon and the outer reaches of the heavens. Together with Babbage Laboratories we have developed a ship capable of flying high into space and the heavens themselves. New technologies have been developed so as to power the ship on its long journey. Super coal is used in the furnaces to provide extra power, a new metal has been developed called Amulinium that is lighter and stronger than iron or steel.
We believe there may be nefarious agents at work in the heavens. To protect our vessel we have a new form of artificial lightening device. This device is sure to disarm or at worst obliterate any foe willing to take on the Empire. Her Majesty, on seeing the vessel, exclaimed “ our empire is sure to expand in a most superb and timely manner.”
