Arcadia-Class Jumpship

From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki

"Arcadians were the most common jumpships during the Golden Age, used for both terrestrial and planetary excursions. Their remains have been reported around most Earth-based space ports."
— Ship description
The Arcadia-class jumpship.

The Arcadia-class Jumpship is the first ship obtained by new Guardians.[1] It is a standard model of the Arcadia class of Jumpships.

The ship is first retrieved by the Guardian shortly after their first resurrection in the mission A Guardian Rises, found in Dock 13 in the Cosmodrome. It requires an NLS Drive, found in the Story mission Restoration, to breach the atmosphere.

It is also in Destiny 2 as part of the New Light Quest. In the quest, it is detailed to be the Guardian Maeve's jumpship.


Arcadian ships are a relic of the Golden Age. Their hulls and baseline tech have been salvaged for scrap for decades. With the right modifications, any ship capable of reaching post-atmospheric standards is worth repairing, and for many, the Arcadia ships often offer a Guardian their chance to step into the black.
