NASA: Planet of the Apes 4

Closing out the Planet of the Apes Weekend, we document the NASA spaceship Cassiopeia.
The Cassiopeia was launched in 2125. It was the first long-duration space mission. It held four crew in suspended animation: Ulysses, the commander; Romulus, an African-American male; Sophie; and Martinez, another female. It was descended from the design of the National AeroSpace Plane, also known as the X-30 or the Orient Express.

The Cassiopeia appeared in the Ubisoft videogame for the PC "Planet of the Apes", released in 2001 as a companion to the Tim Burton film. It is part of the timeline designated Planet of the Apes 4.
