The core starting point of any space operation. The hangar is a specialized facility designed to house and protect starships during their downtime.

A well-structured hangar ensures that ships are kept safe from space hazards and can be quickly deployed when required. Hangars vary in size, from accommodating single exploration ships to housing massive industrial & colony ships.

Ship Details

The ships of the universe are marvels of engineering. Built to withstand the unforgiving environment of space, each vessel comes with its unique set of features and capabilities. Ships range from agile exploraion ships, designed for traveling across starsystems, to vast colony ships that can house entire communities. Advanced navigation and propulsion systems ensure that these vehicles can journey between star systems with ease. Their hulls are typically reinforced with adaptive alloys that can resist extreme temperatures, while state-of-the-art onboard computer systems assist pilots with navigation and safety protocols


Maintenance is paramount in the unforgiving vacuum of space. Ships are subjected to the relentless duress of cosmic radiation, micro impacts, and the wear-and-tear of space operations. Because these conditions can lead to rapid degradation of ship systems, every ship is equipped with diagnostic AI that can detect and address minor issues autonomously. However, larger concerns necessitate skilled technicians equipped with the latest repair protocols. Every starport usually houses a team of experts, ensuring that travelers can always find the help they need. Regularly scheduled maintenance ensures a ship's efiiciency, longevity and, the safety of its crew.

Fuel Consuption

Interstellar travel demands energy. Understanding a ship's fuel consumption is critical, as running out of fuel in the void of space can be catastrophic. Pilots need to keep a vigilant eye on their fuel reserves. Even if reserves dip dangerously low, every ship come equipped with fuel synthesizers, providing a last-resort means of slow-paced travel.

FTL (Faster Than Light) fuel powers the drives that allow ships to jump across vast interstellar distances in moments. Extracted from exotic element sources, this fuel type can be rare and expensive. Harnessing the properties of negative mass and space-time distortions, FTL fuel allows ships to traverse "jumps" or "warps" in space, breaking the cosmic speed limit set by the speed of light. Pilots must ration their FTL fuel and use it strategically, as frequent jumps can quickly deplete reserves.

STL (Slower Than Light) fuel is used for sub-light speeds, commonly utilized in intra-system travel or when approaching celestial bodies. Usually derived from more conventional energy sources like fusion reactions or antimatter, STL fuel is more abundant than its FTL counterpart. Despite being slower, it offers more controlled propulsion, which is vital when navigating asteroid fields, docking at space stations, or landing on planets. Efficient management of STL fuel is essential as it is the primary mode of propulsion in areas where FTL jumps are risky or impossible.


Cargo is the foundation of the intergalactic economy. Ships are designed with modular storage units, allowing for the efficient transport of goods. These storage sections are often shielded to protect sensitive cargo from radiation and potential hazards. Some specialized ships even come with cryogenic storage or airtight compartments for transporting perishable or volatile goods. Enhanced gravity locks ensure that the cargo remains stationary, even during the harshest space turbulence. With the advent of digitalized inventories and AI-assisted cargo management, loading and unloading processes have become more streamlined, reducing the turnaround time at spaceports.

While space may seem vast and unending, storage efficiency is vital, especially on long-haul trips where every inch of space could be the difference between profit and loss. Advanced spatial algorithms help optimize cargo placement, allowing ships to carry maximum loads without compromising on the safety and integrity of the goods.


Behind every great ship is an even greater crew. From captains with decades of experience to rookies taking on their first mission, every individual brings unique skills and perspectives. While AI systems play a significant role in every ships, the human touch remains invaluable. Crew members undergo rigorous training, learning to handle emergencies and mastering the art of surviving in the universe.

Officers, engineers, medical staff, and various specialists work together, ensuring the vessel remains operational and ready for any challenge. Cultural exchanges and interpersonal relationships often form on these journeys, fostering bonds that last a lifetime. The crew's well-being is of utmost importance, and spaceships are typically equipped with recreational areas, and other amenities to cater to the physical and psychological needs of those onboard.
