Hyperion (initiative briefing sideview)
Hyperion represents one of several Arks specifically designed for the Andromeda Initiative’s mission. While its support staff is comprised of a variety of Milky Way races, Hyperion is primarily responsible for the transport of human colonists to Andromeda. At more than one-and-a-half kilometers long and weighing 17 million metric-tons, Hyperion – and its sister Arks – rank among the largest starships in the galaxy. Hyperion is currently in the final stages of construction within the moon’s orbit.

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.[1] It apparently arrived in Andromeda much later than the other Arks:[2] Hyperion spent around 634 years traveling instead of the projected 600.[3]
