About Homeworld Shipyards

Site Purpose and History

Homeworld Shipyards is the definitive resource on all of the ships of the Homeworld series of games published by Sierra Studios. Just think of us as the Jane's of space.

The Homeworld Ships Page was started by Barney Hawes on Homeworld.org in 1998 back before the release of
the original game. Arioch joined the team in late 1998, and went on to create the Homeworld: Cataclysm Ships Page on well-of-souls.com after Homeworld.org became RelicNews.com (and the original Ships page disappeared). Homeworld Shipyards is the successor to both of these sites, and will continue both to serve as a reference on the existing games as well as a compendium of information on forthcoming Homeworld games.

This is not a daily news site. It is only updated when there is interesting information available to post. If you're looking for daily Homeworld-oriented news, I recommend RelicNews.com or Homeworld Universe.

The information contained herein is taken, wherever possible, directly from the games themselves or from official sources of literature, such as manuals, official websites and quotes from the original designers, developers and writers. Analysis and summary by the Shipyards staff are included separately from the official fiction, and in yellow type. Original fictional descriptions written by Shipyards staff are marked in pale blue type.
