Starships are the fastest and most expensive spaceships and are capable of Interstellar Travel. The development of the starship paved the way for the United Planetary Federation's birth, and made it possible for Vrusk, Dralasites, Yazirians and Humans to meet face to face. Starships are driven by either atomic fission engines or ion engines. They tend to be large, although the recent introduction of the assault scout has created an exception to this rule.
Starships are used for any job that requires transport from one star system to another. Most military ships, many freight haulers, passenger, research and exploration vessels, and some agricultural ships are starships.
