Space Fleets are NPC versions of starships.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Space Carrier Scheibe Moria

Space Fleets are neutral stationary star ships that reside in space within star systems, often allied with certain alien race such as the Gek, Vy'keen or Korvax. They are protected by fighter ships that only spawn when a player decides to steal resources from their cargo bays. Space Fleets are enormous rectangular ships that often travel in groups of 3-6 ships. Currently, only Cargo Fleets exist.

Usually Space Fleets carry self-defense weaponry such as Defensive Turrets. Depending on the model of the carrier, they may only have the options of Photon Cannon Defensive Turrets or Phase Beam Defensive Turrets or both Phase Beam and Photon Cannon.

Distress Level[edit | edit source]

When a Space Fleet is under attack, a distress call will be send out immediately to fighter starships which spawn almost immediately; the number of ships appears to grow at an exponential rate.

1st Cargo Bay Destroyed
1 Sentinel Starship + 1 level Notorious Space Star
2nd Cargo Bay Destroyed
2 Sentinel Starships + 1 level Notorious Space Star (Total Accumulated Stars 2)
3rd and 4th Cargo Bays Destroyed
3 Sentinel Starships + 1 level Notorious Space Star (Total Accumulated Stars 3)
5th and 6th Cargo Bays Destroyed
4 Sentinel Starships + 1 level Notorious Space Star (Total Accumulated Stars 4)
7th+ Cargo Bays Destroyed
5+ Sentinel Starships + 1 level Notorious Space Star (Total Accumulated Stars 5)


Sentinel Starship Carriers will appear once a player hits level 5 Notorious Space Stars and release 6-9 Sentinel starships.

Please clarify the following: but this seems to be incomplete that it would disappear on its own along with ships released by it if stars disappeared in next few seconds.

Consequences[edit | edit source]

A player's standing with certain alien lifeforms will greatly decrease, depending on which lifeforms the Space Fleet is associated with.

Resources[edit | edit source]

A variety of resources can be gathered from destroyed cargo bays; a player may even find exotic elements. Here are some known resources that have been gathered from cargo ships:

Iron
