The Retro Hercules is a limited version of the Hercules, featuring its original model.


  • The Retro Hercules has an interior where you are greeted by a cargo deck with a few crates and a teleporter in the rear, where you are then teleported to an upper deck with the pilot's seat/computer and passenger seats


  • Extremely high turn speed for it's size, being faster than most other ships overall.
  • 9,000 overall health, combined with the high speed makes it hard to kill compared to most freighters.
  • Is surprisingly easy to dock, allowing for quick trading runs and escape from most pirates.
  • Can act as a passenger ship if ever necessary due large amounts of seats.
  • Second largest cargo ship of all player ships in-game.


  • Very, very expensive.
  • Limited, so you cannot get it back once lost.
  • Can be seen as a trophy kill to pirates due to its expensive cost and being a Limited kill.
  • Awful cargo hold size relative to the cost by today's standards.


  • Only use when not in war, if used at all.
  • Make sure to see that area you are heading to is all clear.
  • If you do decide to use it during war, use its high speed to quickly dock at the Mega Base before any pirates can get to you.
