Future space energy relies on small nuclear reactors called ExoNukes. The word "Nenergy" is a contraction of "Nuclear Energy". The Gamma Corps deploys and repairs Nenergy stations, and assists spacegoing vessels with replacing and repairing their ExoNuke reactors as well. They have an assortment of tools at their disposal. First and foremost, a Geiger counter for detecting any leaks in the nuclear cores. Second, a nuclear reactor repair tool which can fix just about everything that could go wrong with an ExoNuke. Third, they always keep a screwdriver on hand for good measure. Most importantly, the Gamma Corps relies heavily on their esteemed ACT Suit for carrying heavy nuclear cores and ExoNuke station base units.
The Gamma Corps has a lot to do in order to keep the space citizens bustling about. Their technical proficiencies include replacing and repairing old shielded cooling rods, nuclear cores, and Nenergy charging station base units. Their carbon-fiber 15-ton supply trailer has an on-board computer, 8 ExoNuke mounts, 2 utility boxes, space for a charging station base and an ACT suit mount.
With the technical expertise, and industrial-strength equipment to get the job done, the Gamma Corps is prepared for any adventure, from assisting downed spaceships to responding to nuclear emergencies!
The core set consists of the Smithy tractor, 15-ton trailer (fully loaded), ACT Suit, one charging station and two Gamma Corps minifigs. 377 pieces.
Further additions are planned: i.e. buildings and spaceships that use ExoNuke technology, Gamma Corps HQ, as well as a Gamma Corps security team for hazardous zones and space bandits!
