The communication between Scout ships and their Home Ports was embedded into video images and sent to respective way stations located in each solar system. The codes for our particular ship were finally decoded from messages entitled "I Love Lucy". The diagram shown here is a reproduction of what was apparently a detailed cue sheet for the last mission the ship was on when it was lost.
Once underway, these details would be projected onto the cylindrical section of the communications and guidance display for the pilots to follow.


Legend has it that these ships were difficult to operate at sub-sonic speeds and many were lost during re-entry.
