Colony ships are large, long-range transport vessels.

Description[]

These ships are designed to carry human colonists and supplies to the Outer Planets or even beyond the Solar System to settle new moons and planets. As such, they required massive storage areas, which made them attractive targets for conversion to other purposes, authorized or otherwise.

Examples included the Canterbury (prior to conversion to serve as an ice hauler)[1] and the gargantuan LDSS Nauvoo (prior to conversion by the OPA to serve as a warship)[2].
