    Until recently, historians have been at a
    loss to adequately explain how the Salvage vessels
    (see Crankenstein) could traverse the varied
    landscapes of their designated pickup locations.

    Intergalactic/planetary travel was in no
    way hindered by their massive weight due
    to the weightlessness of space.

    Once on the
    ground however, it was a very different.

    I assume that the corrective angle on this model of fork was intended to counteract the extreme forces encountered by salvage vessels when attempting to break free from heavy gravitron flux fields. It also may have been useful to displace habitron flow through the structure when heavy salvage loads were carried. The reverse curvature would invert the habitron flow resulting in better load vs. deflection ratios. 8)

    I see you're no stranger to advanced hurtling techniques. The habitron flow WAS crucial but the blade design was adopted to actually ENHANCE gravitational pull as the "ZEEBEE"s were designed for supersonic descents when fully loaded. (more about that later).

    btw: 12 ga. My father always said I needed a good shot in the. . .

    Glad to see you're making another fine spacecraft. Perhaps we will see each other in the crab nebula?

    The SS 396 Salvage Ships ships were heavy and difficult to maneuver.

    No amounts of coffee and tobacco products
    could entice the meat motors to attempt to
    reach the higher elevations where most of
    the precious payloads were harvested.
