A colony ship (also known as a colonial transport) is a starship that carries a mix of passengers and cargo that are intended to found or expand a new colony. As such they are designed to be rugged, self-sufficient, and have long endurance, since they frequently operate for long periods in areas with minimal or no port facilities.

Typically, colony ships are unarmed and some designs are constructed in such a way that they can be dismantled once they reach their destination and used to form the initial constructions of a colony. (FASA RPG module: Federation Ship Recognition Manual, TNG video games: Birth of the Federation, Armada II)
