VIP Ship

This ship is a VIP ship and can only be obtained if you own the VIP Gamepass.

The Constellation is a medium sized Freighter-class ship. It formerly had no armament, due to the removal of all armaments from armed freighters (except Carvainir, which was moved to Battleship).


The Constellation is a large Freighter, the only one to be armed. The Constellation is a VIP ship. The ship is remodeled, until then the images and description of this are outdated.


To enter the Constellation's interior, step on a teleportation pad located on the back of the ship. Once you are inside, you will be greeted by a slate grey slightly rectangular room with a black "pilot's seat" (brick) in the middle of the room.


  • Large cargo hold.
  • Can easily make large amounts of Credits per run given a good economy.
  • High Hull and Shields.
  • Good acceleration.
  • The only armed freighter in the game.


  • The ship's large width and relatively slow speed make you a prized target for Pirates using bigger Ships.
  • Expensive and requires VIP.
  • While this ship is armed, the armament is so weak that it can hardly defend itself from an experienced Frigate pilot.


  • Check the Minimap often so you can warp away from any enemy Ships if needed.
  • If anything stronger than a Battlecruiser attacks you, retreat to your Starbase or to a safe area as soon as possible!

  • It was one of the four Freighters with Turrets, the other being the Patriotic Hercules, Carvainir and the C Class.
  • Although it was supposed to be the first armed Freighter, the Carvainir was designed for the same purpose. The Carvainir however, was classed as a Battleship due to its high firepower.
