Ship Descriptions

Utility Ships
Icon stealth probe class.png
Shadow Probe: Extremely fast probe used to spy on foreign worlds for tactical purposes. Probe is destroyed on use, but provides a complete espionage report regardless of the target's espionage tech level. (All universes)
Icon regen solar satellite.png
Genesis Class Solar Satellite: Power-providing ship that produces energy more efficiently than the Helios. Although stationary and easily destroyed in a raid, it has a 70% chance of regenerating. (All universes)
Hermes class.png
Hermes Class Probe: Extremely fast probe used primarily to spy on foreign worlds for tactical purposes. (All universes)
Requires: Shipyard.png 3 Jet drive.png 3 Espionage tech.png 2
Solar satellite.png
Helios Class Solar Satellite: Power-providing ship. It is stationary and easily destroyed in a raid. (All universes)
Requires: Shipyard.png 1
Zagreus.png
Zagreus Class Recycler: Used for collecting debris left behind in battle. Faster than the Dionysus. Send these on a harvest mission and you can collect the resources that float in debris fields around planets after battles. (All universes)
Requires: Shipyard.png 2 Jet drive.png 3 Energy tech.png 3
Dionysus class.png
Dionysus Class Recycler: Used for collecting debris left behind in battle. Has a larger capacity and uses less fuel than a Zagreus. Send these on a harvest mission and you can collect the resources that float in debris fields around planets after battles. (All universes)
Requires: Shipyard.png 4 Jet drive.png 6 Shield tech.png 2
Gaia class.png
Gaia Class Colony Ship: Used for colonizing new worlds. When sent to an empty planet spot, it will create a new world on which you can develop new mines and buildings, and deploy ships. (All universes)
Requires: Shipyard.png 4 Pulse drive.png 3
Triton.png
Triton Class Recycler: When sent into battle, this ship—if it survives—can recover a destroyed ship from the wreckage of that battle. (human)

Transport Ships (All universes; human)
Atlas class.png
Atlas Class Cargo: A cargo ship, for hauling resources between planets or from raids. You begin the game with one of these ships. Upgrades to Pulse Drive when you research level 5, after which it is the fastest cargo ship.
Requires: Shipyard.png 2 Jet drive.png 2
Hercules class.png
Hercules Class Cargo: An upgrade to the Atlas with better shield, hull, and cargo capacity. However, it is slower than the upgraded Atlas Class.
Requires: Shipyard.png 4 Jet drive.png 6
Carmanor.png
Carmanor Class Cargo: The largest freight ship in the Universe. It's slower than the Atlas or Hercules but has the largest cargo capacity, making it ideal for moving large amounts of resources.
Requires: Shipyard.png 6 Jet drive.png 10 Expedition tech.png 4
Charon class.png
Charon Class Transport: The only ship approved for civilian and droid transport. Each one is capable of ferrying six between your worlds.
Requires: Shipyard.png 3 Pulse drive.png 2 Armor tech.png 2
Starfighters
Artemis class.png
Artemis Class Fighter: A basic assault unit. It is cheap, light, and dependable, and is the first attack ship that most commanders will build. (All universes; human)
Requires: Shipyard.png 1 Jet drive.png 1
Apollo class.png
Apollo Class Fighter: An upgrade of the Artemis Class that uses a Pulse Drive in place of a Jet Drive allowing for greater firepower and defenses. (All universes except Conquest; human)
Requires: Shipyard.png 3 Pulse drive.png 2 Armor tech.png 2
Empusa.png
Empusa Class Fighter: Small but powerful assault unit. Its pilots are trained to perform kamikaze missions to inflict massive amounts of damage on enemy ships. (Nova; Krug)
Requires: Shipyard.png 3 Jet drive.png 4 Weapons tech.png 2
Erebus.png
Erebus Class Fighter: Lightweight fighter with a heavyweight weapons system. During combat the Erebus will fire three times per round, ignoring all shields and directly striking the hull of the ships and defenses of your enemies. (Conquest; Seekers)

Vortex.png
Vortex Class Fighter: Urcath fighter. (Urcath)
Light Capital Warships
Curetes.png
Curetes Class Cruiser: a defensive style of ship. It is designed to absorb large hits. While it has limited offense, its high shields and the fact that nothing rapid fires against it make it able to withstand large amounts of fire, making it a great addition to your fleet. (Nova; Conquest; Urcath)
Requires: Shipyard.png 4 Jet drive.png 4 Particle tech.png 1 Shield tech.png 4
Poseidon class.png
Poseidon Class Cruiser: features around three times the defensive capability and twice the weaponry as the Apollo Class, in addition to being one of the fastest ships in the universe. (All universes; human)
Requires: Shipyard.png 5 Pulse drive.png 4 Particle tech.png 2
Medium Capital Warships

Ship Engine Types

There are three types of engines currently in use in the Starfleet Universe, the Jet Drive Engine, the Pulse Drive Engine, and the Warp Drive Engine.

Note: Of the three drive types described, only Pulse and Warp are even vaguely interstellar in nature, and Pulse drive would, in reality, only be of use in so-called "generation" ships, which literally take a lifetime to reach the nearest stars. Hence Warp drive is really the only one of these drives which should properly operate within the time-frames suggested by the game.

The Jet Drive Engine

The ancient Jet Drive Engine ignites a combustible gas and use the resulting thrust to move ships. While new advances have continually increased their efficiency, they are, on the whole, a relatively slow method of transportation. Still they are cheap and effective for units that don't require the advanced speed afforded by Pulse and Warp drives.

Ships using the Jet Drive Engine Type:

The Pulse Drive Engine

The Pulse Drive Engine is an evolution of the Jet Drive Engine. Instead of igniting a stream of gas, it uses a series of nuclear explosions (pulses) to generate considerable thrust. This engine type is used on larger and faster ships instead of the Jet Drive Engines.

Ships using the Pulse Drive Engine:

The Warp Drive Engine

The Warp Drive Engine is the pinnacle of transportation technology. It uses magnetism to reshape the space-time continuum around it, allowing ships to move at faster-than-light speeds.
