Shipyards are manufacturing and repair facilities for starships. They require serious capital to build and maintain, but any world that wishes to be considered galactically significant must possess one of these facilities. Shipyards are the only legal dealers of new and used starships, and the only source of reliable upgrades for existing vessels. Some noteworthy shipyards include:
- Sigma Shipyards, located on the Kane Band
- Greyshoulder Shipyards, located on Viking
- Gladius Shipyards
- If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.
You must land on a planet with a shipyard in order to sell or upgrade a captured escort ship.
