NPC Travel is an automated method of transport where the server spawns a ship that takes you and your party to another location. Players board a StarSpeeder 3000 that is automatically flown for them to their chosen destination.

How Do I Use It?

You will need to be in a Starport in order to use this feature. However, you cannot go into any starport and start travel. There are a series of restrictions that determine where you can leave from, and where you can go:

Where are you? Where can you go to?
NPC-owned Starport NPC-owned Starports
Your faction's starports (open to crewlist and you are on the crewlist)
Your faction's starports (open to your faction)
Your faction's starports (open to all)
Starport owned by a Transportation faction Transportation faction starports (open to all)
Transportation faction starports (open to crewlist and you are on the crewlist)
Your faction's starports (open to crewlist and you are on the crewlist)
Your faction's starports (open to your faction)
Your faction's starports (open to all)

NOTE: If this is your first time using the NPC Transport system, your faction's headquarters will also be available as destinations. You should confirm the appropriate destination with your faction's representative prior to starting travel.

If you are in a relevant starport, you can use the NPC transport using the following method:

  • Enter Starport (this is done by walking to any side of it)
  • When in the Starport, click NPC Transport (it should now give you a list of destinations)
  • You can press Ctrl+F and search for your desired destination
  • Select a Starport and pay for the ticket (if a lightning symbol appears, it is not powered)


NPC starports are located on all race homeworlds. These will be easily spotted on the planet view map due to the unique city image they have. This image looks like this:

I've Started Travel, Now What?

Congratulations, you are now on your way to your destination. You should have been given a rough indication of how long the trip will take when you were arranging the transport. You should stay on board the StarSpeeder 3000 until you reach your destination, whereupon you will be kicked out of the ship and you will find yourself in the starport you were heading to.

In the meantime, there is not much you can do with your character, beyond looking through the forums, and talking with other players. There are two rooms that you can walk between if you so wish. These rooms will have some descriptions that will give a flavour of the room, as well as give you an ETA for the current leg of the trip. Your itinerary will look something like this:

Stage of Travel Time Taken
Ascending to Atmosphere 1 hour
Ascending to Orbit 1 hour
Moving out of Grav Well variable, between a few minutes and several hours
Hyper hours to days, depending on distance between systems
Sublight to planet generally a few hours
Descending to Atmosphere 1 hour
Descending to Starport 1 hour

There will be about an hour or so wait between each leg of the journey.
