The Saturn is an affordable Miner class ship with two Medium Mining Lasers.


The Saturn has the sixth-quickest mining speed out of all standard Mining ships in the game due to its two Medium Mining Lasers. The ship has low health, only being able to withstand a few hits from Medium and Heavy weapons before being destroyed. Physically, the ship has four main thrusters behind the bridge, four large containers for Ores, and a tapered front end resembling an old model of the Advanced Miner. It takes a minimum of 150 seconds to fill up its hold.


The Saturn interior consists only of a short, yellow and gray hallway separated from the pilot's seat by a team-colored "door." The pilot's seat is about as tall as the player, black and gray in color, and faces an empty, gray room.


  • Sixth fastest mining speed in the game.
  • Sixth largest Ores hold in the game.
  • The two Medium Mining Lasers have a range of 5500 studs, the same as the Rorqual.
  • Affordable.



  • Check if any enemies are coming every 30 seconds, either by looking around or on the Minimap.
  • Always mine in a peaceful faction to ensure safe Mining.
  • If in a War, check enemy locations every 30 seconds to avoid destruction of your Ship.
  • If an Alien ship or an enemy ship is approaching you, head back to base.
  • If an Alien ship is targeting your Starbase while you are mining, stay where you are.
  • Don't mine at the Mega Base during War, especially without protection.
