Lunar Orbit Ops by Earthlight by Drell-7 Lunar Orbit Ops by Earthlight by Drell-7
Once the Nuclear Lunar Ferry rendezvoused with the Lunar Orbit Station, it was up to theLunar Tugs to take the cargo Modules on the last leg of their journey to the lunar bases. These rugged, versatile craft, utilitarian and squat, provided logistic support, satellite retrieval, and servicing in the Earth orbit and cislunar environments.

It was always a favorite of mine, too! It made so much sense that it be able to fit in the shuttle cargo bay for deployment.

I've ever loved this Nuclear Lunar Ferry design, since I've seen in an old book.

Is it just me...or are they about to jab a syringe into the "moon". I know I've had that happen to me, so maybe this is just repressed memories coming to the surface....

Notice that the engines on the back of the Eagles are small NERVAs!

Yeah, basically. All the designers for 1999 were big fans of the "real space" hardware NASA was proposing when the show was in production.

OH! And Starbase1 posted his lunar terrain square over at Foundation3D, in one of his threads. I "Squeezed" it horizontally to force the perspective.
