The Alpha Ship is a Carrier easily recognizable because of its large size and color scheme.
It carries 6 completely unique Fighters, all miniature versions of Alpha/early Beta models.
The Alpha Ship can only be acquired by playing in alpha, which ended in 2016. To claim the ship, make an admin ticket in the official discord support server.
The Alpha Ship's Interior consists of a detailed bridge with a pilot's seat, screens and two teleporters. Sitting in the pilot's chair the teleporter on the right sends you to a box with 2 red bunk beds and a screen with a 3D view of the alpha ship. The teleporter on the left sends you to the hanger, before you reach the fighters there is a 3D hologram showing the Alpha ship fighting an Alien fleet.
