Events of Dead Space 3Edit

The Eudora was tasked with finding Isaac Clarke on the New Horizons Lunar Colony before Danik and the Unitologists 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 it's pilot, Rosen was able to maneuver around it. Attempting to locate Ellie Langford's ship, the Eudora was 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 Eudora's design is a large H shaped bow section that retreats into a hunched mid section and three sets of thrusters off the aft of the ship. Two of the thrusters can pivot downward to give the ship a vertical take-off and landing effect while maintaining forward flight. These adjustable verniers allow the ship to maintain a hover if needed. The ship's weaponry systems consists of light batteries which are able to fire a green colored laser. The armaments are vulnerable to fire however; as is seen when they are destroyed in an engagement with Unitologist gunships.

The ship's main weapon consists of a light battery which fires what appears to be concentrated balls of green plasma that can take out Unitologist gunships in a single shot. However, the battery is vulnerable to fire as it isseen when a Unitologist gunship destroys it in the enagement on New Horizons. The Eudora also has heavy munitions on board to deal with larger ships or structures as it is demonstrated when the Eudora destroyed the massive Ptolemy Station.

USM Eudora's Schematics

Smaller than the USM Valor and the 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 appears to be large enough to accommodate cargo. The ship also features 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 ship had numerous life preservation devices located around the interior as well as a dedicated escape module. This module was used by Rosen and Locke after the ship's destruction. The module was a large cubic room that Isaac had to manually launch from the ship and follow, along with Carver and Norton, to the CMS Roanoke.


  • The ship has its own emblem that is printed in various places around the ship.
  • The Eudora is visually larger when it is explored by Isaac than when it is observed on the outside.
  • The Eudora has two automated voices on board one sounding more masculine and another sounding like ANTI from Dead Space 2.
  • Isaac retrieves his first suit in the game, the EVA suit.
  • The Eudora is the second ship that sustains heavy damage on-screen from space debris right out of ShockPoint after the USG Kellion.
  • This ship has a small crew, similar to the USG Kellion.
  • It is unknown what class of ship this is.
  • The ship has at least one escape module on board.
  • 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").
  • If the player looks at the right arm of the EarthGov soldiers in chapter 1 you can see the Eudora logo, suggesting they are the Eudora's crew members. This makes sense as in the novel Dead Space: Liberation, Norton has a crew of several dozen EarthGov soldiers.
  • There was also an unknown co-pilot on USM Eudora who firstly announced the timer until reaching destination, as he situated on the far left of the ship. He was presumably killed by either the automated mines' explosions or the space suction at Eudora's main deck.
