The original speed that a ship travels. The speed decides the travel time between planets. Ship speed is increased above base with every level of engine researched.
- Combustion Engine increases the speed of ships using a combustion engine by 10% of base for each level researched.
- Impulse Engine increases the speed of ships using impulse engines by 20% of base for each level researched.
- Hyperspace Engine increases the speed of ships using hyperspace engines by 30% of base for each level researched.

* Small Cargo Ships start out with a combustion engine. Once Level 5 Impulse Engine is researched, all Small Cargo Ships are automatically upgraded to Impulse engines and take advantage of the faster speed.
** Bombers start out with an impulse engine. Once Level 8 Hyperspace Engine is researched, all Bombers are automatically upgraded to Hyperspace Engines and take advatage of the faster speed.
