A freighter is a really, really large ship. Some are bigger than a space station.

Getting freighters[edit | edit source]

You can get your first for free by warping to nearby systems with high conflict levels. Sooner or later, after warping, you will emerge in the middle of a fight. Destroy all the pirate ships to be given access to board the freighter.

To buy it, find the bridge. Either climb the stairs, or teleport there. Then speak with the captain, who will offer to give it to you, or to take a reard of the freighter's inventory contents.

The first is free. Afterward, you can board any freighter and have chance to buy it. Saving a freighter gives you a discount on this price. Costs range from a million to over fifty million units.

You might ask, is a few extra storage slots worth that much? Well, no. But you are not buying "a few extra storage slots". You are buying a large ship with many features.

You may only own one freighter at a time. Buying a new one gives you the option to transfer the old base to the new freighter.

Uses of a freighter[edit | edit source]

  1. A few extra storage slots.
  2. A warpdrive that has much longer range than a starship warpdrive has.
  3. A large area to build a base on board.
  4. The ability to get a squadron - a team of up to four AI shipt to fight alongside you, against any foe. Pilots can be hired for free at space stations and trading outposts. You cannot hire pilots in space stations from pirate-controlled systems.
  5. The ability to buy frigades for freighter expiditions (which offer much loot).
  6. With an "orbital exocraft materializer" built: the ability to summon exocraft anywhere as long as the freighter is in your current system.
  7. With a "storage container" built: extra storage tabs for each storage container built. Each tab may be renamed.
