This track is a musical story about the maiden voyage of the StarHawk – a beautiful sleek interstellar ship. She is a state-of-the-art space vessel with an on-board AI, capable of FTL travel and transdimensional jumps.
(0:00) Our story begins as the StarHawk is released from space dock for the first time and heads into the glittering blackness of open space to stretch her wings. (0:36) As she flies she passes clusters of stars, distant planets orbited by icy moons, and the shifting golden sun. (2:05) After some time the StarHawk boosts into FTL gear and soars silently and gloriously out of our solar system.
(3:50) Kicking down a gear she prepares for her first transdimensional jump. (4:10) She makes the calculations, switches her engines over from light-drive to fusion, and then with a sudden stomach-dropping jump she is gliding through the dark fog of transdimensional space.
(4:40) There are new wonders to be seen in the fog… dimensional flares, dark matter stars, and the majestic flying Slipstream Ava’s which play in the StarHawk‘s slipstream like dolphins behind a speed boat. The StarHawk automatically catalogues everything she sees for the humans back on Earth to study later, but for her the journey is all about flying – (5:40) she is completely free as the hawk for which she was named, flying on wings of glass in a sea of stars.
