Factional variants of the Enterprise
Civilian Pirate


The Auroran Industries Enterprise is an Auroran ship in Escape Velocity Nova. This craft is unavailable for most of the Vell-os Storyline.

"The Enterprise is the backbone of all Auroran freight movement. About half as wide as a Leviathan is long, the Enterprise carries a fraction of the cargo, and at much higher cost. Nevertheless, the Enterprise has several advantages over the Leviathan and Pegasus, including integrated FPC weaponry (with room for much more), a higher sublight speed, and the ability (in time of strife) to be converted to a passable military ship." ― Buying an Enterprise

The Enterprise is a durable medium freighter that has a bad hitbox.

Stats[]

"An ugly ship, the Enterprise has the spartan look of most Auroran vessels. Its huge cargo holds are able to be packed with a vast haul of produce. Yet the would-be pirate must think twice about attacking this ship after his view encompasses the thickness of the Enterprise's armor. In short, this ship should be with you at the end of the journey, and Auroran pilots would just as soon die rather than dump your cargo and run (thereby dishonoring their House)." ― Hiring an Enterprise

Gameplay Analysis[]

Enterprise Shipyard

"While the Argosy is the perfectly armed and defended light freighter, the Enterprise accepts the same role, but with a much larger cargo hold. This ship is painfully slow to me, though, so I never use it as a primary ship, only as an escort. It's cargo bay is large enough to hold tons of loot (whether purchased or stolen), and it is strong enough to defend itself against attacks." ― EVula Survival Guide

The Enterprise is a surprisingly powerful vessel that falls under the freighter category. It might be sluggish but coupled with its sturdy armour and weapon mounts it can be used as a mediocre offensive tool rather than a commercial one.

Beam weapons fire from the back of the Enterprise, greatly reducing the range and effectiveness of forward-targeted beams. However, this peculiarity does make turreted beams such as the Turreted BioRelay Laser more effective when firing to the rear. Also, weapons fire from the Enterprise's wingtips giving it a huge blind spot in the center.

This craft also comes in a Pirate version, which has considerably more firepower, including support for an additional turret, better shields and armor and slightly increased speed but somewhat less cargo space.

The Enterprise was made by Dave Williams with textures by Stephen Chick and Phil Chick.
