The Stellar Whale was a civilian interplanetary passenger liner manufactured by Shinnakasu Heavy Industries in cooperation with the Meyer Corporation and Siemens. Inspired by Earth’s old cruise liners, the Stellar Whale was designed for transporting passengers to planets located a short distance from Earth. Capable of landing on a planet, the Stellar Whale was equipped with many gravity control mega clusters and thermonuclear turbine engines, along with eight fold engines. In March 2040, the Stellar Whale transported Myung Fang Lone, the “manager” of virturoid idol Sharon Apple, from planet Eden to Earth for a concert in Macross City.
