The Atomic Rocket Program
The Atomic Rocket program was brought into effect right after the Atomic Wars that devastated the Earth. These were very early attempts to explore the solar system and beyond. Many of these United Nations missions were lost. Only now have the details of some of these missions been revealed. Pax and many of the Precursor missions scouted beyond the solar system.
These lost space craft might find their way into the turf of games like Terminal Space, Star Ships and Spacemen and beyond.

Each of the Atomic rocket craft are stripped down for propulsion, and outfitted with only the barest of necessities. These craft may have only 4 sleep pods if at all. Operating with a nuclear rocket/ion system the craft were hardy but very spartan but many of the crew do swear by them.

Just waiting. Meanwhile the design is still used for short planetary hops even today.
