The Columbus is an old but reliable hull design. It can be used to create a colonization vessel or a cheap cargo vessel. In-Game Description
Overview & Strategy
Although the Columbus can potentially be configured as a cargo vessel, 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. The other might be given to a Cargo or Personnel Transport module, in order to get a new colony started quickly. When colonizing planets, the colonizer ship may need to be supported by other freighters to bring in any further resources or population that the new colony may require. This hull also has no Weapon slots of any size, so an armed escort is also advised.
- The Columbus is featured in most of the animations that play when the player colonizes a new planet.
