This ship is used for terraforming purposes, basically what that means is that it flies in orbit around a planet and it uses it's 8 launchers to shoot dozens of torpedoes to the surface of the planet. These torpedoes are packed with bio material and life forms to kickstart a planet's terraformation. Several of these seed ships have been built so far and they have been sent in deep space on auto-pilot to launch their payloads at any suitable planets they encounter on route.
Note: The ship was inspired by a concept art image made John Wu. I really liked this particular ship design so I made something based on it but still somewhat different.
