The ark ship was converted from a colony ship into a science ship by the Realm Exploration Society. The ship contains laboratories, libraries and observatory (above the library) to help map and study wildspace. Each building has a door leading into an underground corridor connecting them to several underground barracks, magical laboratories, alchemical laboratories, cargo holds, offices, bath areas, armories, a huge research library, hospital, temple, shops and many other rooms. There are marines stationed in strategic areas of the ship to prevent enemies from entering the underground deck. There is a trail to each of the 2 wing sail that allows adjustment and repair of the sail. The right trail continue all the way down to the gravity plane where a small dock is located to allow cargo ships to dock with the ark ship for resupply. There is a light catapult and a light ballista protecting the dock. There are 4 wreckboats and a mosquito ship (scout ship) and a dragonfly ship (used for local supply run) and several long boats stationed with the ark ship.
