The colony ship is a terran aerospace transport.

Game UnitEdit

Colony ships appear in the Wings of Liberty single-player campaign.[1] 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.[2]

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.[2]

An infested colony ship exists; it has 600 hit points.[3]

The colony ship's development render

The colony ship was one of the early undertakings to create unique artwork for the campaign of Wings of Liberty. The Hercules dropship stemmed from its conception.[4]
