The Toronto (sometimes stylized as TORONTO) is a mining ship from Earth owned by DDT, sent to Albion to mine its large raw mineral supplies. The construction of the spacecraft costed DDT over 120 billion credits. The ship consists of 8 segments which are able to unfold when landed.
The most notable technology on the Toronto is its AI, Ned, which took up about a quarter of the ship's costs. Ned controls all systems on the ship. Ned's mind is stored in the Central Computer which is housed in a wireless super-durable box.
The Toronto uses the over-c drive technology for travelling higher-than-light speeds.
The fusion reactor on the Toronto is the most effective power source know to humanity. Inside the reactor, a fusion reaction goes on, which produces immersive amounts of energy.
As the ship mines more and more minerals, it can grow in size, automatically expanding the sections.
The gravity on the ship is simulated via the centrifugal force caused by the ship's rotation.
Thanks to the AI control, only 80 crew members are necessary to control the ship.
Only 2 of the 8 segments have life-support systems. The rest contains mining supplies. During the landing sequence, the segments are unfolded like a flower, landing on the ground.
- Based on the angular velocity of the ship visible in the intro, its diameter can be calculated to approximately 2300 meters when folded, in order to generate Earth gravity-like centrifugal acceleration.
