The starship built for the first flight to the Dyson Pair on an information gathering mission. Nigel Sheldon suggests the building of a starship to go on a scientific mission while Wilson Kime gives it the name. The ship is built in orbit 1000 km above Anshun. The CST exploratory wormhole is used to reach the assembly platform that houses the construction of the Second Chance. The starship has a cylindrical body 400m long and 150m in diameter that houses the ftl drive and plasma rockets. The life support section is a ring 300m in diameter that rotates to create 20% standard gravity. The ship is powered by fifteen niling d-sinks with microfission piles and fusion generators as back-ups.
