Limited Ship

This ship is a limited ship, and could only be acquired for a limited time or it has since become limited.
You lose it forever once it is destroyed, or otherwise has limited availability on the Limited Build Menu.

The Retro Prototype X-1 is a Retro Variant of the Prototype X-1.


The Retro Prototype X-1 is a "test dreadnought" based on the Prototype X-1, part of the Retro Ship Event 2022 and Retro Ship Event 2023 where you could buy it from the UNE Harbour Master in Terminal C of the Mega Base for 2 million credits.




  • High turret count with an armament well-equipped for Sieges.
  • Powerful Spinals.
  • Health is well-balanced and has a very high overall total for a Dreadnought, at 43,000 total HP; making it the second most healthy dreadnought in the game.
  • Spinals have 0 second interval, meaning they are fired all at once.
  • Long range on the turrets(8,000 studs) allows you to outrange most other ships you will encounter.
  • Large cargo hold will allow you to loot valuable items fairly well from NPC ship wrecks.


  • Rather slow with low maneuverability.
  • Extremely valuable target for superior ships such as super capitals, or groups of pirates; thanks to the outrageously expensive cost of 2 million credits (and 1 Blueprint B), as well as being a Limited ship.
  • Large blind-spots below and behind the ship.
  • Massive size makes this ship a very easy target to hit for even the most inaccurate turrets or pilots with poor spinal aiming capabilities; not to mention Torpedoes.


  • This is a decent ship for diving battleships and other dreadnoughts when they flee to their base, tank with your health.
  • Do not try to move out of the way of Huge Torpedoes with regular ship movement alone, as the ship is too large and too sluggish to dodge them. Instead, warp out of the way of any Huge or Large Torpedoes that you see coming towards you.
  • This ship is heavily targeted due to its expense and limited status. As mentioned in the ship's description, use with extreme caution.
