The Zephyr wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 08/23/13 04:29AM View full history


This Ship was a gift from CCP during the Holiday Season of 2009. It was only available during December 18th 2009 and January 6th 2010, and every account only received one of its kind. Like the Interbus Shuttle, this Ship is a "limited edition", which means, there are no blueprints available to build other Zephyr's by players. It comes with a special variation of the Probe Launcher, the "Prototype Iris Probe Launcher", which will only fit on the Zephyr. As an additional bonus, and maybe to boost wormhole exploration, this ship is completely ignored by Sleeper NPCs.


Official Description

No Caption Provided

The Zephyr is a unique starship design, relying almost entirely on solar winds for sublight propulsion. Super-light sails allow it to ride the torrents of photons streaming through space, and its barebones construction gives it a tiny sensor footprint and almost negligible mass.

Originally conceived by the ascetic Intaki polymath Valsas en Dilat as a demonstration of minimalist starship design, it was never intended as a commercial venture. The recent discovery of the uncharted Sleeper Territories and their myriad wormholes has brought the Zephyr new attention - its mass makes it an ideal exploration vessel.

Valsas remains adamant that the Zephyr never sees mass production, but at the close of YC111 he authorized the Intaki Syndicate to distribute a single hull to every registered capsuleer.
