Federal Corvette blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Core Dynamics Federal Corvette. The superheavy fighter and armed to the teeth, it's the ship you don't want to find on your tail. Also available in black.

This ship requires the Federal Navy rank of Rear Admiral for a player to purchase it in the game.

First introduced in version 1.5 Ships expansion.

Anaconda blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Faulcon DeLacy Anaconda. Excellent trader, handy in a fight and if the loadout is right, the longest range exploration ship you can own.

First introduced in version 0.1 Alpha 4.

Type 9 Heavy blueprint

This is the bluprint for the Lakon Spaceways Type-9 Heavy. The only ship with a manoeuvrability rating of zero, the super-size freighter and foremost mining ship, the Type-9 is the cow of space.

First introduced in version 0.1 Alpha 4.

Python blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Faulcon DeLacy Python. My personal favourite. Tough, flexible and capable. The perfect ship, can go anywhere, good jump range, loads of cargo space and handles ships way above it's weight class.

First introduced in version 0.1 Beta 3.

Orca blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Saud Kruger Orca. The first passenger ship in the game and sadly lacking anything to do (apart from being used as a ramming vessel) the Orca finally has a real function from 2.2. Most famous for being the least used ship in the game, it has a stylish neon yellow interior on the bridge.

First introduced in 0.1 Beta 3.

Scarab SRV blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Vodel Scarab, a Surface Reconnaissance Vehicle (or SRV for short). Deployable from any ship equipped with a Planetary Vehicle Bay, the Scarab allows commanders to drive around the surface of planets and moons.

First introduced in version 2.0 Horizons.

Federal Gunship blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Core Dynamics Federal Gunship. Slower and less agile than its sister-ships, the gunship makes up for it in fire power. With seven hard-points it's the most heavily armed ship this size of an Anaconda.

This ship requires the Federal Navy rank of Ensign for a player to purchase it in the game.

First introduced in version 1.4 the CQC expansion.

Imperial Clipper blueprint

This is the blueprint for the Gutamaya Imperial Clipper. Fast and well equipped this Imperial multipurpose ship can be a fighter and a trader, let down only by weak shields. Cheaper by far than the Python, it's requirement for a Large pad is it's only shortcoming. Sounds amazing!

This ship requires the Imperial Navy rank of Baron for a player to purchase it in the game.

First introduced in version 1.1 with the Community Goals expansion.
