Characteristics[edit | edit source]
All Asimov Class liners have a rotating habitat area. The command decks and shuttle bays do not have artificial gravity. While most Asimovs are used for comfortable transportation, some are used just for cargo, especially when cargo may need to be under gravity for long durations. Prior to the outbreak of the Telepath War, the Psi Corps had secretly modified several starliners to serve as Motherships, spending most of their time in hyperspace, ferrying missions back and forth. While the class was only designed to carry 300 passengers, when pushed to absolute capacity an Asimov can carry as many as 2000, though under extremely cramped conditions.
Known Vessels[edit | edit source]
- Asimov: The Asimov was a frequent visitor to Babylon 5, for the most part transporting passengers and cargo to and from Earth.
- Callisto: The Callisto was a starliner docked at Babylon 5 in 2258. One of its passengers was Ha'rok.
- Unnamed Ship: One of several transports taken by Stephen Franklin and Marcus Cole in an effort to circumvent the Earth Alliance blockades between Babylon 5 and Mars in 2261. Captain Jack claimed that the ship's pilot was his brother.
