I'm not sure where to find the jibbenmast or the gravystem on a Tausennigan spacecraft. I would assume they are in the usual places, above and below the annie-plant, but I could not clearly identify them in the picture. Perhaps the Tausennigans design those bits differently. It's what we've come to expect from warlike marsupialoids.

Narrator:Ennesby, tagon, brad, and shv'uu are off to buy a warship...
Tagon:Okay, ennesby. 'port us out to the juibel system. The ship is waiting for us at these coordinates.
Ennesby:Coordinates look good. Here we go.
SFX:TERAPORT
Ennesby:Well, here we are.
Brad:Where's the ship we're looking for? behind this space station?
Tagon:This isn't a space station, brad.
Tagon:You are looking at the bargain of the millennium. A genuine tausennigan thunderhead superfortress... One of the most fearsome classes of warship ever to ply the stars.
Tagon:She's just over a kilometer from jibbenmast to gravystem, and can deploy up to sixteen dragon-class warships. She'll carry a crew of 200, along with a droplement of up to 10,000 soldiers, depending on species.
Tagon:The best part is that she'll fly herself... You don't really need crew on this baby. The thunderheads are controlled by an onboard A.I. that's smarter than a hundred ennesbies.
Ennesby:Is that so?
Tagon:I meant it in the best possible way, ennesby.
Narrator:Okay, so it's a cool spaceship. Can we move the plot along now, please?
