Isaac: "Norton, which ship is the Eudora?"
Norton: "The bigger one that just flew over your head!"
Isaac Clarke and Robert Norton.

The USM Eudora was an Earth Defense Force vessel captained by Robert Norton.


Events of Dead Space 3[]

The Eudora was tasked with finding Isaac Clarke on the New Horizons Lunar Colony, intent on reaching Isaac before Danik and other Unitologists aligned with the Circle could kill him in the uprising. Catching up to Isaac as he escaped the city on a train, the Eudora fended off two Unitologist gunships over the train before picking up Isaac and shocking away from the Moon.

Following the vessel's successful blind shock to Tau Volantis, the ship was almost struck by the debris, but its pilot, Mark Rosen, was able to maneuver around it. Attempting to locate Ellie Langford's ship, the Eudora was then attacked by the automated mines and the bridge was severely damaged before the ship began to fall apart.

After the Eudora began losing power, Isaac ventured through the collapsing ship to reach the EVA Suit and helped the rest of the crew jettison from the crumbling craft into the debris field toward the CMS Roanoke as the Eudora exploded.

The USM Eudora.

The USM Eudora's design consisted of a large H-shaped bow section that retreated into a hunched mid section and three sets of thrusters off the aft of the ship. Two of the thrusters could pivot downward to give the ship a vertical take-off and landing effect while maintaining forward flight. These adjustable verniers allowed the ship to maintain a hover if needed.

The Eudora's weaponry systems consisted of light batteries that fired what appeared to be concentrated balls of green plasma, which could take out Unitologist Dropships in a single shot. The armaments were vulnerable to fire, however, as seen when a Unitologist dropship destroyyed them during the engagement on the New Horizons Lunar Colony

The Eudora also carried heavy munitions on board to deal with larger ships or structures, as it was demonstrated when the Eudora destroyed the massive Ptolemy Station.



The USM Eudora's schematics.

Much smaller than Destroyers like the USM Valor and USM Abraxis, the USM Eudora featured four known sections: a command bridge, a living area consisting of bunk beds and tables/chairs, a dedicated sanitation area including showers and lockers, and a large room containing a ramp mechanism which appeared to be large enough to accommodate cargo. The ship also featured an automated voice warning function like all the other ships in the Dead Space series. It did not appear to have blast shields like the USG Kellion

The Eudora had numerous life preservation devices located around the interior, as well as a dedicated escape module. This module was used by Rosen and Locke when the ship was destroyed. The module was a large cubic room that Isaac Clarke had to manually launch from the ship and follow, along with Carver and Norton, to the CMS Roanoke.


The Art of Dead Space USM Eudora

The Art of Dead Space's overview of the USM Eudora (see full size image for details).

  • The Eudora is visually larger when it is explored by Isaac than when it is observed on the outside.
  • The Eudora had two automated voices on board, one sounding more masculine and another sounding like ANTI from Dead Space 2.
  • The name Eudora comes from the Greek female name "Ευδώρα" which is comprised of the words "ευ ~ ef" (meaning "well") and "δώρο ~ doro" (meaning "gift").
  • There was an unknown co-pilot on the USM Eudora who firstly announced the timer until reaching destination, as he was situated on the far left of the bridge. He was presumably killed by either the automated mines' explosions or the space suction at Eudora's main deck.
