Overview

In the 1950’s Enrico Fermi asked the question, if any relatively industrious and intelligent life can explore and colonize a galaxy, and intelligent life isn’t particularly rare, then intelligent alien life should be everywhere. Eventually, the Space Corps Corvette patrol encountered the large craft of unknown origin near the asteroid Vesta on June 24th, 2055. Thus, providing humanity with some answers to the question, "Where are they?"

Its purpose was unknown, its capabilities unbelievable. Besides, it had no intention of making a peaceful contact.

The Space Corps' Vesta Intruder has returned after 20 years. Today it is speeding toward the inner solar system, and the home of humanity. The Space Corps is making their last stand, and mounting a defense. Should talks not be possible, this will be a fight for the future of humanity, but traitors may receive a favorable fate from the alien conquerors. So, where will you stand?

The Space Corps Vesta Intruder is 2+ feet tall. Moreover, it can fly up to 350 feet high using a C11-3 engine! With a Standard Estes Engine, it launches loudly and disappears into the sky like a spacecraft traveling at light-speed.

The Vesta Intruder is not of human origin, and it shows from the menacing airframe to its out-of-this-world performance. Bring the Vesta Intruder to your launch site to spark ideas of intelligent communication and unknown technologies.
