MARV-IN stands for Multidimensional Astral Research Vessel, Series I, November class. It is the first run of civilian semi-luxury, XD Star drive cruisers designed for extended voyages across the galaxy. It is manufactured by Virgin Galactic on Earth in the 2350's.

The Younger Brother Pear is the only N-class ever manufactured, as it was designed specially for the Astrophilosophy department of U. Berkley-Shanghai. Special features include an ancient film screen, compartmentalized variable gravity controls, extradimensional trans-existence paradox sensors, smuggler compartments on every deck, and detox-rehab facilities.

The MARV is actually two vehicles. The main portion of the MARV is the living and research space and contains the interstellar drive engine. The other is a SHITS, the interplanetary shuttle and landing craft which docks with and provides sublight propulsion for the main vessel.
