MOYA

My home-away-from-home ... Aeryn, D'Argo, Rygel, and Pilot's home, too. Moya's "biomechanoid" — part machine, part organic. That's right, she's a living ship. Her species is called, appropriately enough, Leviathan.

She is big. Dozens of decks, hundreds of chambers. I [ MOYA ] haven't even explored a tenth of her. Too easy to get lost....

Her faster-than-light drive is called Starburst — it's a gut-wrenching acceleration into, well, "someplace else." (When I used the word "hyperspace," everyone, including Pilot, just looked at me funny. I guess the Translator Microbes can't quite cope with quasi-dimensional concepts.)

I'll try to get some better estimates of her size and learn more about her motive power (and, oh yeah, that little matter of exactly how she ignores Einstein's theory of relativity) when I get a chance. In the meantime, I'll just say she's a heck of a ship. She's taken good care of us and I'd fight to defend her just as much as I'd fight to defend Aeryn, D'Argo, Pilot or Rygel. (Probably more than I'd fight to defend Rygel, actually.)
