One of the three ships offered to starting pilots. Similar in cost to the Shuttle. Slowest of the three in top speed, acceleration, and turning rate, but with a much larger cargo hold. The Star Barge is tied for first place with the Sparrow for its weapons space, twice as much room for weapons as the Shuttle. Able and patient pilots may find cargo ships an interesting combat challenge, but with turrets instead of the punch of guns, and less able to avoid enemy fire, the Star Barge comes a distant second in combat readiness. A drawback that players of Escape Velocity (that did not have a Bunks statistic) may not anticipate is that the capacity for Passenger missions (lucrative compared to other missions at the start of the game) is limited by the Starbarge's three Bunks; half that of the Shuttle, and only one more than the Sparrow. Bunks can be added at certain Outfitters.

"The Syndicate CT-50 Star Barge is little more than a cluster of cargo containers with an engine at one end and a cockpit on the other. It is a slow and ugly ship, but it can carry enough cargo to earn its captain a steady income even in parts of the galaxy where it is hard to find passengers to carry or courier missions.     Because they often carry valuable cargo, and because they are too slow to evade any attackers, Star Barges are a common target of pirates."
