Life Pod

Life pods are used to move your colonists, crew, troops and high guard rangers between planets. The personnel can be frozen to reduce pod mass.

Life pods can also be used to transport enemy prisoners from planet to planet. Sometimes after a battle you will find a few life pods floating around with personal who were lucky enough to escape their ships before they exploded. You can have the personnel in the pod transferred to your ship if the pod has your people in it.

If you capture an enemy life pod you can command the pod to drop into one of your bases, making them your new prisoners. You will need to tow or carry the life pod to the desired prison planet before ordering the pod to dock with your base.
