The ship, once constructed, will allow the colonists to escape the planet and win the game.
A working ship must include at least one of each ship part, which sums a minimum total of:
- 1,800 steel
- 950 plasteel
- 255 uranium
- 86 components
- 100 gold
- 1 AI persona core
More may be used allow for more than one colonist to escape or for aesthetic or symmetrical reasons.

All ship parts must not be built under a roof and must be connected. Only one occupied cryptosleep ship casket is necessary for launch, but each colonist or pet you wish to evacuate must have their own casket. Currently the only way to take along pets is to down them, then right click their bodies and select "place in ship cryptosleep casket".
The ship's launch readiness can be displayed by selecting any ship part and clicking 'Show launch report'. It will either list deficiencies or display 'Ready for launch'. To launch the ship, select the ship computer core and click 'Launch ship'.
