Base Description

HMS Jules Verne Battle Balloon Located on planet Jules Verne, Starsilk 2 System, Teyncol Region, Delta Quadrant, Euclid Galaxy, the HMS Jules Verne Battle Balloon and Shirian Bombing Range is a living history museum. Before visiting Travellers brought advanced travel technology Shirians had primitive modes of transportation one being air travel using balloons and steam power. They built iron balloons filled with Radon which became lighter than air when heated by light fissures. The Shirians were a peaceful people that had to resort to warfare when they were invaded by the evil Orcians. After the Shirians defeated the Orcians on their home planet Sigma Oasis they came to the aid to the inhabitants of planet Jules Verne after hearing the Orcians invaded the Vernians. The Shirians established a base and bombing range to help train its aviators before they launched their fleet of Battle Balloons. They used a extinct volcano as a practice target which one side collapsed from all the Sphere Bombs dropped. They also built a bunker to test the vulnerability of structures from bombings to aid in the development of Sphere Bombs. Eons later a preservation society refurbished a Battle Balloon and converted the old bunker into a museum. We hope you decide to visit and relive history. Some of the things you can do on your visit: Tour the Battle Balloon and see the Bombardier control room, check out the views from the Radon tree platforms (which helped keep the balloon airborne), examine the captain and crews quarters, plasma gun deck (guns were both manually and computer operated), terrarium and fish tank (these two species were hypersensitive to the presence of Orcians and were used to locate their positions), operate the Sphere Bombs, learn about the steam engines, tour the bridge and navigation stations. Head back down and learn more about Battle Balloons and the First Shirian-Orcian War in the Bunker Museum, explore the volcano bomb crater, marvel at the mysterious enchanted forest, hang out at the secret relax and recreation cavern (the aviators being stationed in such a remote location and not having much to do between training and missions made a secret spot to unwind), examine the clandestine moonshine still and NipNip grow tray, take a dip in the pool, explore the underwater caves. There are several spots which visitors can release the bombs. We hope you enjoy your visit.
