A Megaship is a class of massive ships that travel through the galaxy, and are utilized in a wide variety of roles. Megaships were introduced in update 2.3 "The Commanders". Comparable in size to most stations, and in some cases much longer, a number of megaships are also equipped with docking facilities for small, medium, and large vessels. All services normally available at stations are on offer, with the exception of the Shipyard.
There are various types of Megaships:
- Asteroid Miner
- Flight Operations
- Prison Ship
- Science Vessel

Player Group Megaships Edit
The Gnosis Edit
The Gnosis is the first megaship owned by a player group called The Canonn. It's located in the Varati system, orbiting planet A 6 since 18 MAY 3303. It comes with its own faction that players are attached. Once you become aligned to Cannon you'll receive a cannon logo for your ship. Anyone can use it such as docking and other facilities. It is high spec, it has nearly every single facility except a ship yard. The community goal for the Gnosis had nearly 10 thousand participants.
Granting player groups megaships is huge step for Elite Dangerous. Eventually the megaships will be able to move to new science projects and the unfolding story. It could be deployed in deep space such as Colonia, Sagittarius A* or the Formidine Rift. That is a huge potential for players in deep space.
There was a wild 64-hour, 10-tier community goal to deliver 35 million tons of Indium, Computer Components and Tea to help build a new Megaship for the Canonn Interstellar Research Group. It started on 11 May 3303 and 9,721 players contributed to complete the goal in 64 hours. There was a delivery rate of 9114 tons per minute. The Gnosis will serve as a mobile command post for the Canonn Research Group and their allies. Capable of faster-than-light travel, The Gnosis will be deployed to ongoing research sites such as barnacles, ancient ruins and Thargoid sites.
Facilities of the Gnosis: commodities, outfitting, docking module, missions, passengers, crew, restock, refuel, repair, universal cartographics. No black market or interstellar factors.
