Using the “standard” FTL drive engines the crew were able to return home but the journey took three years. During that time they were able to learn a good deal about the ship.
The Antares was intended to be the first in its class. At the time of its commissioning the Earth was imminent threat from the Myzx.

Eight bays are located midships, four either side. Records left on board it appeared the ship was supposed to be fitted with a compliment of four space interceptors, albeit they never arrived before the ship was abandoned. Two shuttles were found on board in similar sized bays although this d
