As with the other Arks, Hyperion is equipped with the experimental ODSY Drive System for sustained FTL in dark space. 20,000 humans are in cryogenic stasis aboard Hyperion, among them the Pathfinder assigned to the ship - Alec Ryder.
Hyperion runs into problems upon arrival at its assigned world, Habitat 7. Contact is lost with Nexus and the other Arks. It apparently arrived in Andromeda much later than the other Arks: Hyperion spent around 634 years traveling instead of the projected 600.
