It is July 4, 1978. 12 year old David Freeman was taken to a planet called Phaelon, 560 light-years away, By a Trimaxion Drone ship
Capabilities -It is unknown whether or not the ship can move faster than light. If when Max took David to Phaelon and back, 8 years passed, which was due to time dilation, which occurs at near light speeds. Faster than light, in theory, one would travel BACK in time, not forward. It could be that the ship travels at near light relativistic speeds, then uses it's time travel ability to compensate for time dilation.
-Time Travel- the ship possesses the ability to travel backward and forward in time, as when it took David back to 1978
-Can travel underwater
-The ability to move at over the speed of Mach 10, when it went 20 miles upward.
-Can speak thousands of languages and has the ability to change it shape to better suit it's movement.
