Earthling Cruiser screenshot (Sega Genesis version)

The Earthling Cruiser is the second lowest-ranked ship in the Alliance roster, even though its long-range homing tactical Nuclear weapons (aka "Fire-and-forget" missiles) have the highest weapons range for an Alliance ship, along with it also having the fastest turning speed of all Alliance ships. Its special ability is the automatic-aim Lasers for close-up combat, which can either hit a target multiple times in one shot or splinter off and destroy several targets at once (such as a horde of automated fighters from a Ur-Quan Dreadnought). It is also the second cheapest ship to build during a full game.

On the flip side though, the ships don’t have a lot of fuel or crew, plus the Cruiser also suffers from slow fuel regeneration, its thrust is very slow (as pretty much any Ur-Quan Hierarchy ship [its enemy] can outrun it), and not only do the Fire-and-forget Nuclear Missiles not always hit their intended target, but also the damage they cause is only fair at best.
