The 14 coolest spaceships players have found in 'No Man's Sky'

In the huge PlayStation 4 game “No Man’s Sky,” you’re a lone traveller exploring an endless universe full of planets, aliens, and billions of stars. Of course, if you want to explore that universe, then you’re going to need a ship.

The game just got a massive new update that adds freighters, but it was absolutely rife with spaceships of all types before today.

Here are some of the craziest ones we’ve found in our travels — in the game and on the internet:

The ships range in size from smaller ships -- like the one in the background -- to gigantic space trucks. That red ship in the foreground is huge!

There are some pretty amazing midsize ships as well. This guy looks straight out of 'The Last Starfighter.' Look it up, kiddos!

One player on Reddit found this glorious beast in matte black. Gorgeous!

Hello Games

This one looks awfully familiar ...

Hello Games

Indeed it does, 'Futurama' fans!

Fox

That's not the only referential ship players have found ...

Hello Games

Yes, that does look like Kylo Ren's ship from the latest 'Star Wars' movie.

Disney

And some ships are downright bizarre, like these two weirdos!

And there's plenty of other variety. This one is more space freighter than space fighter.

You can see how the various ship layouts lead to various designs. That's how it goes when your game is all procedurally generated by algorithms!

Hello Games

I'm quite fond of these big guys.

I found this starfighter on a planet that I named 'Jabroni Canseco.'

But let's not kid ourselves. The main ship you start the game with is quite a looker unto itself.
