A starship, starcraft or interstellar spacecraft is a space vessel capable of faster-than-light speeds (i.e., able to travel between stars), typically using warp drive, though several other methods of propulsion have been developed and observed.
History and specifics
The term normally refers to large, multi-purpose vessels, as opposed to vessels such as cargo ships, transports, warp shuttles, and runabouts, which are designed for more specific or limited functions.
