Paschalian EEDV
On the planet Paschalia, a transport delivers its precious cargo to outlying colonies.
About this creation


It's difficult enough to determine the exact date of Easter on Earth, given the slightly arcane calculation required (the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox). Colonists of the planet Paschalia had an even bigger headache, as the planet's 4 suns give it between 5 and 9 equinoxes annually, and the 15 moons mean that the date changes depending where on the planet you live and Easter can occur several times in a single year. The byzantine politics of Paschalia didn't help, as the spheres of influence of the 2 main powers were constantly changing. The New Roman Republic required colonies within its boundaries to observe a 6-day week, eliminating Monday (on the grounds that no-one likes Mondays) whereas the Julian Collective preferred an 8-day week (inserting Spoonsday between Tuesday and Wednesday).

In these highly unpredictable conditions it became almost impossible for normal Paschalians to get their Easter eggs on the correct date. The Easter Egg Delivery Vehicle (EEDV) was their solution.



A planet-wide network of distribution centres was set up, from which high-speed EEDV transports could deploy decorated or chocolate eggs to any point on the planet's surface within 16 hours.



The EEDV's unusual shape combined excellent aerodynamics with ample refrigeration to protect its cargo from the heat of the 4 suns, while the Boron-Uranium Torsion Thruster gave excellent top speed, albeit with very limited opportunity to change direction once it was reached.



So much so that after early unfortunate accidents, all EEDVs were required to carry 2 pilots, both with exceptional eyesight and reflexes and preferably able to see different visible spectra.









Happy Easter everybody!

I love how round and egg-like this vehicle is, plus its double trans-red canopies. It's brilliant that there are play features hidden inside too: just like a real Easter Egg!

Oh god, Stuart, that is on par with Douglas Adams! Pure, unadulterated zaniness with absolutely no compromise. Love the vehicle, but the explanation of the different times for Easter to actually occur was brilliant. Gloriously irreverent! Now if you could only explain as to why the Christian faith celebrates the holiday with a rabbit that lays chocolate eggs only to hide them, I would be eternally grateful. XD Eggcellent!

The rover somehow looks very cuddly. The double cockpit is a good idea. Great job Stuart

Awesome rover! Love the shaping. I like the dual red bubble canopies. Gives it a bug like look. Excellent design.

It has a nice B.U.T.T... that is: Boron-Uranium Torsion Thruster. It's egg-shaped AND delivers eggs. Multiple Easter celebrations... what's not to like? Awesome build, and Happy Easter!!

We love it! The boys had a blast this morning seeking out various egg shaped sugar filled vessels. This one would have been an improvement in the parents opinion. I hear the jingle of bricks as I type - they've been inspired!
