Appearance: The End of Time

The Hesperus was a spaceship owned by Vinvocci, humanoids with spiky green skin. It was a salvage vessel, chiefly used to trawl asteroid fields for junk.

Description Edit

The Hesperus was two or three hundred feet in length, shaped like a sort of fish or bird-like creature, with the bridge in the head. It had a structure like a dorsal fin on top, which appeared to be used for stabilisation in a planet's atmosphere. It had two other fins angled on its underside. It had thrusters in the rear and rows of yellowish lights running along the head. (TV: The End of Time)

Armament Edit

Though not intended for combat, the Hesperus was armed with asteroid lasers to blast away meteoroids and asteroids. These lasers proved sufficent to destroy human-made missiles as the ship came under attack from the Master Race. (TV: The End of Time)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • The name Hesperus was never used in-narrative. Instead, it derives from the script for The End of Time. [1]
  • The ship bears similarities to Red Dwarf's Starbug One.
