Before the invention of the hyperdrive, human colony ships were usually large, slow vessels that took hundreds of T-years to reach their destination, resulting in the dilemma that sometimes the target system had already been reached by faster ships of later centuries upon arrival. (UHH)
Known colony ships Edit
- The Prometheus was the first interstellar colony ship launched by humanity. Her departure from the Sol System marked the beginning of the Diaspora of Man. (UHH)
- The Gideon, a sublight cryoship, departed Earth in the early 4th Century PD to bring the Reverend Austin Grayson and his Church of Humanity Unchained to the Yeltsin's Star System. It took 674 T-years to make the journey. (Companion)
- The Jason was a sublight vessel used by Roger Winton and his followers to travel to Manticore. (HH1)
- The Icarus was the first Warshawski sail-using colony ship sent into space by humanity. Unlike other colony ships which were dismantled at the target location, she remained in use for over two hundred T-years. (UHH)
