"I love airships. to me, ever since I was little. Seeing them inspires somthing that modern jets and airplanes don't. To me it inspires more than visions of victorian england. Speculative fiction didn't have rules that restrained the likes…"

"well Xeno, remember that, before everything, Steampunk is a branch/style of Science Fiction (and even Fantasy)... so it is completely fair to have technological marvels who are way ahead of time.. look at modern science fiction, Back to the…"

"I have in fact. Perhaps I should mention that I was referring to a Victorian era setting, so while there were certainly jumps in technology at that time, it would have taken a massive bunny leap to have that type of flying platform. Certainly they…"

"Xeno, I'm still curious... what is your definition of AIRSHIP... I understand that you don't think they're plausible, but I'm not sure what you mean by the term... we may have differing defnitions"

The Azure Cat

I'm in because I drew blueprints for a water ship / aerial / spacecraft, It runs on steam, and utilizes a mechanical energy storage and generation device.Within the vessel is a garden, for entirely self-contained food.The one aspect I haven't entirely worked out is H2O generation, i.e. fuel, or perpetual fuel.The ship also has a gamer's deck, in the event things get dull, or the moment strikes.Happy Sailing,SJSee More
