The Titanic-class colony ship[1] is a terran aerospace transport.

Game UnitEdit

Colony ships appear in the Wings of Liberty single-player campaign.[2] It is primarily used for transporting civilians and all necessary equipment to start a new colony. In the campaign, it is an NPC unit, but it is available to the player through the map editor. The colony ship has 50 passenger slots, but cannot load units with a transport size greater than 8. This means it cannot load massive units such as the thor. The colony ship can also take off and land and can (un)load units while both airborne or on the ground.

Despite being larger than the Hercules dropship, it is not a massive unit like the Hercules. The colony ship also costs less resources and supply than the Hercules, has less armor and utilizes the same model, the only difference being the units' size.[3]

An infested colony ship exists; it has 600 hit points.[4]

AbilitiesEdit

This ship can lift off, enabling it to fly. While in flight, the ship can land.
