Earth

Earth is a neutral planet located in the middle of the map (sector 40/40).

Earth has several limitations and is easily surpassed in functionality by Alliance Planets.

There is always a StarPort at Earth.

Players can Earth Jump by long-pressing the icon located next to their ship. This ability transports them to Earth quickly and costs 2 Black Dollars.
