Flis Kits Proxima Centuri
Proxima Centauri kit is designed to represent the first ever ship to explore beyond our solar system. Her mission is to travel to our nearest neighbor, Proxima Centauri, and to see if there are any habitable planets there.
The "history" part? Well, the story behind this ship and this mission is that it all took place in the PAST for the current members of the United Solar Planetary Federation, as depicted in so many of our other futuristic kits (check'em out, there's an exciting back-story to many of them in the universe of the USPF).
This historic mission is being celebrated on the 200th anniversary of her launch from earth orbit with a crew of 83 officers, scientist and other crew.
Her discovery of habitable planets, establishment of the first colony and the mysterious loss of 20 of the crew on the fateful return mission.
Discover the true beginnings of what becomes the largest political union of races in the known galaxy! The faltering steps towards independence as we explore the outer reaches of near space on our quest to spread knowledge and add diversity to our lives!
