The Litter is one of the most important hull platforms for an empire looking to expand, due to its compatibility with the colonization module. It can also be fitted out to serve as a cargo vessel. Adapted from In-Game Description

The Litter is the Colonizer hull of the Ripchee.

Overview & Strategy

The Litter is the only Ripchee hull capable of being used to colonize new planets, and so will be a priority for shipbuilding, particularly in the early game. With a low build time of 49 minutes, quick expansion of the player's empire is possible.

Although the Litter can be configured as a cargo vessel, as its description states, its equipment capacity is modest at only two Medium General slots, at least one of which must be a Fuel Tank if the ship is to travel any appreciable distance. When colonizing planets, the Litter may need to be supported by other ships such as Paws to bring in any extra resources or population that may be needed. This hull also has no Weapon slots of any size, so an armed escort is also advised.


  • The Litter is featured in the animation that plays when the player colonizes a planet with a low land mass percentage.
