A StarCom-maintained civilian starport facility

Starships in the Core are used to transport individuals, cargo, and military forces between planets. Starship manufacturing is a difficult prospect in the Core as much of the technology to produce starships has been lost over time. The civilian fleet in the Core is maintained by StarCom, as they are the only faction with the technical knowledge and capacity to maintain ships and vast fleet of ships. StarCom does possess limited starship manufacturing capabilities, but these are limited to relatively small, civilian-grade ships.

Military starships are much larger and more imposing than civilian ships. The Core powers all maintain a fleet of active warships though these ships are largely relics from the past, with no current power possessing the capability of producing large warships. Military starships are thus used primarily for troop transport or as strategically positioned deterrents.
