The Silent Star is a Freehold constructed airship approximately 600 feet long. Its hull is made of balsa wood while gas bags are made from the intestines of mammoths known as goldbeater’s skin. It uses a gas known as spirit of flight or ‘funny-air’ because of its peculiar ability to change the pitch of one’s voice. The only known source of spirit of flight is within the Freehold.
Most of the cavity of the ship is filled with gas bags that separates the lower and upper decks. There are three hoists that allow crew members to travel between the decks.
Like all airships, the Silent Star uses wind for propulsion. When landing near the ground the lower sails are capable of being retracted into the hull.
