Encyclopedia > List of ships in the Matrix series

This article is about the 'hovercraft' ships shown in the fictional universe of the Matrix series. For other uses, see Fiction (disambiguation). ... The Matrix series consists primarily of three films, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. ...

The Animatrix short film "The Second Renaissance" depicts the war between men and machines which led to the creation of computer-generated world known as the Matrix. Humans are shown using technology enabling personal vehicles and flying warships to hover above surfaces. The "hovercraft" used by the human resistance, years after the end of the war, seem to use similar technology for propulsion. Animatrix The Animatrix is a major part of the Matrix series, a collection of nine animated short films set in that fictional universe. ... The Second Renaissance (2003) is composed of two short anime films which form part of The Animatrix collection. ... The Matrix is the virtual reality simulation that is the main setting of The Matrix series of science fiction films, comic books and video games. ... Air propulsion is the act of moving an object through the air. ...

Hovercraft are designed to patrol the sewers and tunnels left over from the megacities that existed before the Man – Machine war. Their crews attempt to enter the Matrix in order to locate and free the minds of humans who are ready to understand the truth of the artificial reality. A ship's Operator remains as guide, and prepares crews with navigation data and by hacking equipment and information in the form of programs sent directly to them. Operator (The Matrix) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia /**/ @import /skins-1. ... A computer program is a collection of instructions that describe a task, or set of tasks, to be carried out by a computer. ...

Every hovercraft is equipped with a transceiver, used primarily to broadcast a pirate carrier signal into the wireless network that forms the Matrix. This transceiver is also used to communicate with Zion Control, the security staff monitoring access into the city docks. Typically, hovercraft do not attempt to contact Zion or other hovercraft while on patrol as this could give away their position to Sentinels, killing machines that regularly hunt for ships. A transceiver is a device that has both a transmitter and a receiver which are combined in to one. ... For the use of the term in networking, see Wireless networking. ... Zion is a fictional place in The Matrix films. ... List of artificial characters in The Matrix series of films. ...

Each hovercraft is also equipped with an EMP device which disables any electrical devices in the blast radius. Since this includes the equipment of the hovercraft itself, in order for the EMP to be used the craft must land and its crew cannot be connected to the Matrix. EMP activation switches are placed on the Operator console. All ships are equipped to varying degrees with ballistic gun turrets (reminiscent of World War II-era bombers, like the B-29) for close-in point defense against Sentinels, for when the EMP-weapon is unavailable or its use undesirable. The turrets are controlled by proxy at turret control stations throughout the ships, either with control sticks or by computer interface (touchscreen). They also have multiple panels on the outside, which give off an electric shock to any machines in close proximity, such as sentinels on the hull of the ship. EMP can refer to: EMP - Elektroninių mašinų perdirbimas, EMP Recycling, www. ... The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was a four-engine heavy bomber propeller aircraft flown by the United States Army Air Forces in World War II and other military organizations afterwards. ...

The hovercrafts of the fleet came in range of sizes. The smallest was the Logos, which had a crew of three, while the Mjolnir was capable of carrying at least eleven. Crew members were furnished a basic blue (if First Mate or a regular crew member), gray (if an Operator or a regular crew member) or red (if captain) tunic to wear as a uniform while docked at Zion.

The Avatar appears in the Zion Archives. Its lack of weaponry suggests that its primary function is to transport recently freed Redpills to Zion. In Hindu philosophy, an avatar most commonly refers to the incarnation of a higher being or the Supreme Being (God) onto planet Earth. Zion (Hebrew: צִיּוֹן, tziyyon; Tiberian vocalization: tsiyyôn; transliterated Zion or Sion) is a term that most often designates the Land of Israel and its capital Jerusalem. ...


  • Captain: Kali
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: Unknown

The captain of the Brahma, Kali, was seen at the captain's meeting in The Matrix Reloaded, but the ship was never mentioned during Reloaded or Revolutions. It was part of Commander Lock's defense fleet and in the MMORPG The Matrix Online it is mentioned that the Brahma was destroyed so utterly in the sentinel attack that nothing salvageable or identifiable remained. The Matrix Reloaded is the second installment of The Matrix series, written and directed by the Wachowski Brothers. ... The Matrix Revolutions is the third and final film in The Matrix trilogy. ... An image from World of Warcraft, one of the largest commercial MMORPGs as of 2004, based on active subscriptions. ...

The various Brahma designs seen in the Zion Archives bear no resemblance to any hovercraft actually seen in the films. It is possible, however, that the hovercraft resembling the Ganesha design seen landed in Bay 6 when the Nebuchadnezzar returns to Zion in The Matrix Reloaded is in fact the Brahma as eventually finished.

Blue Dreamer

  • Captain: Cryptos
  • First mate: Veil
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: exivy, Rejex, Stanten, and Kerevola (Recursion); Haigen, Itarrot and Tranta (Syntax); Dreami and Sutola (Vector)

The Blue Dreamer is the mysterious Cypherite flagship captained by Cryptos in The Matrix Online. The name of the vessel likely stems from a concatination of bluepill and the commonly accepted Cypherite slang which refers to human beings still plugged into the Matrix as dream. A blue pill, also called the pilula hydrargyri, contains one part mercury of three and a dosage of 48 gr. ... Dreamers was the second single from solo singer Jack Savoretti tacken from his debut album Between The Minds . ...

In The Matrix Online very little is known about the Blue Dreamer, largely due to the nature of the Cypherite organization as one of utmost secrecy and espionage. It is, however, known that Veil became temporary commander of the hovercraft and the Cypherite organization after the program the Machines used on Cryptos to make him comply with their orders was removed by Seraph. However, when Cryptos decided to remain a Cypherite, Veil allowed him to reclaim control.

Throughout the storyline of The Matrix Online, there have been numerous other Cypherites who have served on the Blue Dreamer.

On Recursion, Viraconrida, the original Cypherite liaison, was captured by Scanline crew member Theptism and eventually disappeared altogether. During the time of her disappearance, however, many other liaisons on the Recursion instance became the target of suspicion and were subsequently killed or disappeared. Khursun was the first of the crew who fell under suspicion, and, after being transferred to another Cypherite ship, a traitorous crewmate uploaded a virus into his body, and he was killed. Escondido and Festaneve later met with similar suspicions, Escondido because he was made official liaison in Viraconrida's absence, and Festaneve due to his unreliability. Escondido disappeared several months after the incident, and Festaneve was eventually convinced to reinsert himself after a Zion operative presented him with substantial evidence of his crewmates intentions to harm or kill him for failing key objectives. Festaneve's current status is unknown, as it was later revealed that the process of reinsertion does not exist. The only members of the Blue Dreamer to not disappear as a result of this incident were Barakoa, who disappeared prior to it, and Kerevola, who remains a lesser-seen member of the crew. A scanline is a line on a CRT tube, made up of dots. ...


  • Captain: Ballard
  • First mate: Malachi
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: Bane

The name of the Caduceus comes from the Greek word caduceus, which is the symbol of two snakes wrapped around a winged staff, commonly used as a medical symbol. In Reloaded, its captain, Ballard, offers to remain behind and wait for contact from the Oracle. While receiving her message, the crew member Bane was attacked by Smith, who overwrote his mind. During the defense of Zion, Bane/Smith killed the entire crew and used the ship's EMP to disable at least five ships (including itself, The Icharus, The Gnosis, and The Novalis). Bane is the only survivor and is saved by the Mjolnir. For the medical symbol often mistakenly referred to as a caduceus, see Rod of Asclepius. ... Agent Smith (later merely Smith) is a fictional character featured in the Matrix film series, played by actor Hugo Weaving. ... The term electromagnetic pulse (EMP) has the following meanings: electromagnetic radiation from an explosion (especially a nuclear explosion) or an intensely fluctuating magnetic field caused by Compton-recoil electrons and photoelectrons from photons scattered in the materials of the electronic or explosive device or in a surrounding medium. ...


  • Captain: Unknown
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Parr, Red
  • Other crew: Maggie, Rollins, Lena

The Callapidae, called the Grey Ghost, is featured in the comic Broadcast Depth. One of its crew members, Maggie (coincidentally sharing the name of a crew member on the Mjolnir), is the mother of two children who decide to find her in the Matrix as a birthday present for her. They accidentally alert the Sentinels to the position of the ship, and its entire crew is killed. The ship apparently looks like a crab, and the name is probably a misspelling of the family Calappoidea. For the science of classifying living things, see alpha taxonomy. ... Families Calappoidea is a superfamily of crabs. ...


  • Captain: Unknown
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: Unknown

The Ganesha appears in a concept design sketch by artist George Hull [1], and in the Zion Archives. A vessel matching the concept design sketch can be seen landed in Bay 6 when the Nebuchadnezzar returns to Zion in The Matrix Reloaded, but this hovercraft is actually more likely to be the Brahma. Presumably, the Ganesha is part of the fleet sent to intercept the invading Sentinels. The ship was not intitially disabled when Bane sets off the EMP, but nethertheless must have been destroyed shortly after. Its name derives from Ganesha, the Hindu remover of obstacles. Zion (Hebrew: צִיּוֹן, tziyyon; Tiberian vocalization: tsiyyôn; transliterated Zion or Sion) is a term that most often designates the Land of Israel and its capital Jerusalem. ... The Matrix Reloaded is the second installment of The Matrix series, written and directed by the Wachowski Brothers. ... For other uses, see Ganesha (disambiguation). ...


  • Captain: Ice
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown (possibly Jacob)
  • Other crew: Corrupt, Wurm, and Jacob

The Gnosis is referenced in Reloaded. Her crew are featured in Reloaded and Enter the Matrix. Enter the Matrix is the first video game based on the Matrix series. ...

When the Zion ship captains meet within the Matrix, Gnosis crew members Corrupt and Wurm are assigned to guard the door to the meeting place. When Smith arrives "looking for Neo", Corrupt speaks with him. Both Corrupt and Wurm warn the captains of the arrival of "the Feds", a trio of Matrix Agents. Thomas A. Anderson (alias Neo) is a fictional character in the Matrix trilogy: The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions. ... From left to right: Agents Brown, Smith, and Jones Agents are a group of characters in the Matrix series. ...

When the Nebuchadnezzar returns to Zion, Neo is worshiped by some residents who believe he has the power to save them (he is clearly not comfortable with this). One elderly woman asks him to watch over her son, Jacob, who serves aboard the Gnosis. He can not have been shown on screen, however, because the only time a Gnosis crew member appeared on screen, they were in the Matrix, and Jacob must have been a native to Zion.

The Gnosis is part of the fleet sent to intercept the invading Sentinels. The ship is disabled when Bane sets off the EMP and subsequently destroyed.

The name of the Gnosis derives from the Greek word gnosis, meaning knowledge. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


  • Captain: Ajax
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: Unknown (one female)

The Icharus is a ship in the fleet sent to intercept the invading sentinels in The Matrix Reloaded. Earlier in the film, when the Nebuchadnezzar returns to Zion, and Neo is caught by Worshipers, One of them asks him to "Watch over her daughter aboard the Icharus". However, the ship is disabled when Bane sets off the EMP on the Caduceus, and the Icharus is subsequently destroyed. Many fictional characters appear in the Matrix series. ...

The name of the Icharus derives from Icarus, a character in Greek mythology. Its captain is named after the Greek hero Ajax the Great. Icarus and Daedalus by Frederic Leighton In Greek mythology, Icarus (Latin, Greek – Íkaros, Etruscan – Vicare, German – Ikarus) was son of Daedalus, famous for his death by falling into the sea when he flew too close to the sun, melting the wax holding his artificial wings together. ...

  • Captain: Niobe
  • First mate: Ghost
  • Pilot: Niobe
  • Operator: Sparks
  • Other crew: None

The Logos is a hovercraft in Reloaded, Revolutions, and Enter the Matrix. The name is derived from the Greek word logos which is usually translated into the English as word, but has varied meaning in philosophy, analytical psychology, and religion. This article is about logos (logoi) in ancient Greek philosophy, mathematics, rhetoric, Theophilosophy, and Christianity. ... For other uses, see Philosophy (disambiguation). ... Analytical psychology is part of the Jungian psychology movement started by Carl Jung and his followers. ...

The smallest vessel in the fleet, it supports a crew complement of only three Zion personnel: Niobe, Ghost, and Sparks. Built for sheer speed over any other attribute, the Logos has the purpose of relaying urgent information as well as serving as a carrier for its two pod-born crewmen. Its combat abilities are technically negligible when compared with other ships in the fleet, but Ghost's skill with its guns allows it to nevertheless be a significant threat to attacking Sentinels. “Fights” redirects here. ...

The Logos is Mark XIV Number 14 and built in the year 2101. Mark 14:14 reads "And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?"

When Zion's attack becomes imminent, the Logos crew coordinates the recall before joining the rest of the fleet in Zion. When the Council inquires of the fate of Morpheus and his ship the Nebuchadnezzar, the Logos and the hovercraft Vigilant search for the Neb, eventually participating in a skirmish within the Matrix involving Agents and minions of the Merovingian. For other uses, see Merovingian (disambiguation). ...

The Logos is later disabled when it is attacked by a massive horde of Sentinels as well as a Sentinel Tow Bomb, necessitating the use of its EMP. As a result, it survives the assault, but it is depowered as an unavoidable side effect. The hovercraft Mjolnir finds it shortly, rescuing the crew of the destroyed Nebuchadnezzar and giving the Logos a jump-start. Later, Niobe gives the Logos to Neo and Trinity so that they can travel to the Machine city, in an attempt to stop the war with the Machines. The Logos is rendered inoperable on impact when it crash-lands in the Machine City. List of artificial characters in The Matrix series of films. ...

Logos II

  • Captain: Niobe
  • First mate: Ghost
  • Pilot: Niobe
  • Operator: Sparks
  • Other crew: Drisena and Soluma (Vector server liaison), Caelifera, Merrit, and Rylet (Recursion server liaisons), Harkee and Trepetia (Syntax server liaisons),

Logos II is Niobe's current ship in The Matrix Online. It is named after her original ship.


  • Captain: Unknown
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Rook
  • Other crew: Deuce, Speedy, Rocket

The Mariner is featured in the comic, "There are no Flowers in the Real World". It has been attacked by Sentinels and all but one member of the crew, Rocket, has died. He survives for days without any real food or water, but then is killed by an agent just before he is found.

Mjolnir (“Hammer”)

  • Captain: Roland
  • First mate: Colt
  • Pilot: AK
  • Operator: AK
  • Other crew: Maggie, Mauser

The largest ship in Zion's fleet, Mjolnir is the ship that locates the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar after their ship is destroyed by a sentinel tow bomb at the end of The Matrix Reloaded. They have also picked up Bane, who appears to be the only survivor of the battle between the Sentinels and the Zion fleet, but has in fact been taken over by Smith.

Much of The Matrix Revolutions takes place on the Mjolnir, as against Captain Roland's better judgment, Niobe lets Neo and Trinity (and a stowed-away Bane) take the Logos in an attempt to reach the Machine City.

With the remaining crew of the Nebuchadnezzar and the Logos, the Mjolnir races back to Zion, relying on Niobe's piloting skills to steer the ship through the narrow mechanical tunnels. Reaching the city as it is under attack by thousands of sentinels, and with their communications antenna destroyed, the Mjolnir crash lands in Zion's dock and sets off its EMP. This destroys the attacking sentinels, but as an angry Commander Lock warns Roland and Morpheus, they have also crippled the city's defenses against any subsequent attacks.

This ship's named is derived from Mjolnir, the hammer of the Norse thunder god, Thor. Because of this, most characters refer to the ship as the Hammer. Except for Roland, all members of the crew have gun-related names: "Maggie" is short for "magazine" or "Magnum"); AK is named after the AK series of assault rifles; Colt is named after the Colt line of pistols; and Mauser is named after the Mauser pistol (and possibly rifles). Roland may be named after the protagonist of The Dark Tower, who was a gunslinger, or the Roland from the medieval epic "La Chanson de Roland," or the hunter Roland from the movie The Lost World: Jurassic Park, or the Roland surface-to-air missile system, or potentially even Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner from the 1978 Warren Zevon song.

Warren William Zevon (January 24, 1947 – September 7, 2003) was an American rock and roll musician and songwriter. ...

The Mjolnir's commissioning plaque reads "Mark XIV No. 62 Made in the USA Year 2111". Mark 14:62 reads "And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."


  • Captain: Morpheus
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown (Possibly Morpheus)
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: Unknown

The Nabonidus is Morpheus' second ship, following the Nebuchadnezzar's destruction. It's the hovercraft from which he enters the Matrix in the MMORPG The Matrix Online. Recently, months after his still debated death, the Captain's beacon of the Nabonidus was traced in the Matrix. A code pulse device set off by the Kid revealed a transparent RSI that resembled Morpheus and appeared to be in pain, implying that Morpheus is alive and still in possession of the Nabonidus, hidden somewhere in the real world.

It was later revealed that the Morpheus RSI making appearances across The Matrix was in fact a simulcra created by The General in hopes of deceiving his followers into thinking he had in fact returned. The General furious at the fact that his Sim had been discovered tried to de-activate it, but to his surprise the Morpheus Simulcra had taken on a life of its own and turned on its creator. It refused to submit to The General's will and a battle between both The General and the Morpheus Simulcra ensued. The General was defeated by the Morpheus Sim and escaped to the shadows once again. The Morpheus Sim now resides within The Matrix a free program because of the faith of Morpheus's followers. The program itself admitted that it was their faith in him, and the fact that it didn't want to let them down, that made him want to fill the shoes of the great captain of Zion. It is not known if there is any connection between the real Morpheus and the Morpheus Simulcra.

Nebuchadnezzar ("Neb")

  • Captain: Morpheus
  • First mate: Trinity
  • Pilot: Dozer, Link
  • Operator: Tank, Link
  • Other crew: Apoc, Cypher, Dozer, Mouse, Neo, Switch

The Nebuchadnezzar (listen), nicknamed the Neb, is the main hovercraft featured in the The Matrix and Reloaded; it is used by the main characters Morpheus, Neo, and Trinity. Many fictional characters appear in the Matrix series. ... Morpheus is the name of a fictional character (played by Laurence Fishburne) in the science fiction films, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions. ... For other uses, see Trinity (disambiguation). ...

The inscription on its core read "Mark III No. 11 made in the USA year 2069." Mark 3:11 reads "And whenever those possessed by evil spirits caught sight of him, they would fall down in front of him shrieking, 'You are the Son of God!'"

In The Matrix, the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar is searching for Neo, whom Morpheus believes to be the One. When they find him, he is trained and taken to see the Oracle. While returning from the Oracle, Cypher betrays the crew, gives Morpheus to the Agents, and kills Dozer, Apoc, and Switch. Mouse dies before this. Neo and Trinity manage to save Morpheus from the agents, after which Neo becomes the One. The ship was heavily damaged when sentinels invaded the ship when Morpheus, Trinity and Tank were desperately waiting for Neo to come back to the real world through a portal before discharging the EMP, disabling the ship and the sentinels.

In Reloaded, the ship is seen again. Since the events of the first film, Tank has died, and Link has replaced him as operator. After Neo visits the Oracle, the crew goes to a restaurant called Le Vrai and takes the Keymaker from the Merovingian's captivity. Later that night, with the help of the crews of the Vigilant and the Logos, and the exile Keymaker, Neo enters the Source and speaks to the Architect.

The Nebuchadnezzar is destroyed by a Sentinel's tow bomb near the conclusion of Reloaded, right after Neo had left the Architect. The crew escapes before the ship's destruction thanks to Neo's newfound ability to identify and assume limited control over Sentinel hardware using his powers as The One as shown at the conclusion of the movie. The crew were found by the hovercraft Mjolnir very shortly after.

The name Nebuchadnezzar is a Biblical reference to Nebuchadrezzar II of Babylon, from the Book of Daniel. King Nebuchadnezzar ('the Great') was famous for his conquests of Israel in Biblical times (specifically Judah and Jerusalem). He also built the Hanging Gardens of Babylon (one of the lost Seven Ancient Wonders of the World) for his wife. This Gutenberg Bible is displayed by the United States Library. ...

  • Captain: Tirant
  • First mate: Unknown
  • Pilot: Unknown
  • Operator: Unknown
  • Other crew: Unknown

The Novalis is referenced in Reloaded as part of the fleet sent to intercept the invading sentinels. It is disabled when Bane sets off the EMP on the Caduceus, and is subsequently destroyed.

In the MMORPG The Matrix Online, it is mentioned that the wreckage of the Novalis was in fairly good shape, and the ship was quickly rebuilt using spare parts available in Zion, and renamed the Novalis II.

Its name comes from Novalis, an 18th century German novelist and poet. For the German rock band, see Novalis (band). ...

Novalis II

  • Captain: Sawayaka
  • First mate: WanNi
  • Pilot: Neurophyte
  • Operator: Tamarin
  • Other crew: Neurophyte, Vashuo, Lelan, Toorima, Oniyuzu, Odran, Al3xandra

In The Matrix Online it is said that the Novalis II was built from the salvaged wreckage of the Novalis.

The following is an excerpt from Tyndall’s personal records:

Novalis II, Refitted Pacer Class Hovercraft, designated 227. Novalis II is our first new hovercraft, even if it is one of our old ones…

The war was hard on everyone in Zion, but the Zion Military took perhaps the hardest hit. With almost every single one of their trained redpills killed, and almost all of their hovercrafts destroyed, there was a faction within the Military that wanted to write off the Matrix entirely. Luckily for today’s redpills, an aggressive training program began instead – hoverbarges were built, redpills recruited, and the Matrix continued to be the center of the battle for the future.

It was soon discovered, however, that an older style of hovercraft was needed. These hovercraft were fast, and stealthy, and most important, they allowed a group of redpills to work independently of Zion without eyes looking over their shoulders. With that in mind, the Military set out to survey what was left of their old fleet.

Many hovercrafts, like the Brahma, were destroyed so utterly that nothing usable could be salvaged. Others, like the wreckage of the Novalis, were in fairly good shape. The Novalis’ flight-frame was more or less intact. With replacement parts already present in Zion, it was soon up and running. The only question remained: who would crew this ship?

Concurrent with the lack of hovercrafts, the Zion Military was faced with a shortage of trained redpills. Most were killed at the end of the war, and those who remained were either in training or too inexperienced to take command. It was these first days after Neo’s Truce that Zion faced a crisis of confidence.

Faced with a need to move fast and talk its way out of most of its problems, Zion most needed a person able to handle the pressures of being the first hovercraft captain after the Truce. This new captain needed to be able to talk when talk was needed, but fight hard when the going got tough. With the resurrection of the Novalis, now named by her captain Novalis II, came the promotion of a promising young redpill, Sawayaka

Sawayaka found herself in a unique situation. Both the Machines and Exiles placed unusual emphasis on her appointment. Considered the forerunner of a new era, Sawayaka and her crew became more than the first new hovercraft… they became a symbol of the new Zion emerging from war.

Combining the roles of diplomats, soldiers, and even entertainers, the crew of the Novalis II has emerged from these critical first months ready to help Zion and humanity find their way.

Neurophyte was infected by a kill code virus while inside the Matrix.

At the time, there were nine servers, and each one had a different fate for Neurophyte:

  • On Regression, Proxy, Iterator, Enumerator, and Output, she was recovered by Zion and restored to full health.
  • On Linenoise, she was recovered by Zion but died in the process of extracting the killcode embedded in her brain.
  • On Method, the Machines recovered her and restored her to full health, and she became a Machinist operative as a result.
  • On Heuristic and Input, the Machines recovered her and extracted the killcode at the cost of her life.

Vashuo was killed by Toorima when she betrayed Zion and joined the Cypherites. She was captured and put under arrest, but was freed by either Gemaskeerd or Enmascarado, two of her fellow Cypherite operatives. It was after her escape that she revealed herself as Veil, the Controller for the Cypherite organization (alongside its leader, Cryptos, a former Zion captain). At this point, her whereabouts are unknown and she is wanted by all three organizations.


  • Captain: Thadeus
  • First mate: Jue
  • Pilot: Robbie
  • Operator: Robbie
  • Other crew: Five others, names unknown

The Osiris is named after the Egyptian god, Osiris. Its commissioning plaque reads "Mark VI No. 16 Made in the USA Year 2079". In the New International Version, Mark 6:16 reads "But when Herod heard this, he said, 'John, the man I beheaded, has been raised from the dead!' " Egyptian mythology or Egyptian religion is the succession of tentative beliefs held by the people of Egypt for over three thousand years, prior to major exposure to Christianity and Islam. ... For other uses, see Osiris (disambiguation). ... The New International Version (NIV) is an English translation of the Christian Bible which is the most popular of the modern translations of the Bible made in the twentieth century. ...

In the Animatrix film "Final Flight of the Osiris", this ship discovers the Machine army digging down towards Zion. After they are attacked by Sentinels the crewmember Jue enters the Matrix to send a desperate message using an emergency broadcast drop: Final Flight of the Osiris is one of nine short films in The Animatrix series, which reveals more about the world of The Matrix. ... Many fictional characters appear in the Matrix series. ...

This is Thadeus, captain of the Osiris. It is 18:03 on 12-14, and I fear this will be our last transmission. Less than two hours ago we were pinned between two search units near BZ 2-18. We tried to outrun them on the surface when our sensors went completely berserk. We didn't believe what our equipment was telling us until we ran smack into the middle of it. An army. Their army. It's massive, hundreds of times the size of anything we've fought. We are under heavy pursuit and have sustained critical damage. We are going to attempt an emergency broadcast drop in the Matrix. After that, all we can do is hope that somehow this disk reaches Zion, and if it does, then it is not too late.

Just after Jue has dropped this message, the ship is destroyed by Sentinels. Its message, however, is retrieved by the Logos with an emergency operation by Captain Niobe and First Mate Ghost in Enter the Matrix, and Zion is warned of the army.

The Pequod was mentioned in both "There are no Flowers in the Real World" and "Hunters and Collectors". In the former story, the ship is on a rescue mission to save Rocket, a crew member jacked in aboard the Mariner after all of the other crew members had died. In the latter story, this ship has been destroyed in a Sentinel attack and the only surviving member is its captain Flint, who spends much of his time collecting artifacts from the surface to learn about human history before the Matrix.

The ship's core reads "Mark III No. 9 Made in the USA Year 2096". It could possibly be an error, because the Nebuchadnezzar was Mark III No. 11 and made in the USA Year 2069. However, Mark 3:9 reads, "And he spake unto his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him." The biblical passage indicates a proposed exit Jesus could make to "rescue" him from the crowd. The biblical passage would be an appropriate derivation for "There are no Flowers in the Real World", being that the Pequod was sent to rescue Rocket. However, if the Mark III hovercraft series was constructed in 2069, it would have been most likely retired soon after. The 2096 models might have been something similar or completely unrelated. The relation of Mark III between the Nebuchadnezzar and the Pequod is currently unknown. This article is about Jesus of Nazareth. ...

The name of the Pequod is a reference to the name of Ahab's ship in the novel Moby Dick. "Hunters and Collectors" borrows from the novel and even features it in the ruins of a surface city. The relationship to a ship called Mariner is a further reference to the novel. For other uses, see Moby-Dick in popular culture. ...

Scanline is an independant crew of informants and data scroungers. Their Motto, "Scan for Truth", is generally spoken at the end of any conversation with an operative in the Matrix, and they spread information about the goings on behind all organizations to anyone willing to listen. Distribution of this information may occur in person, but Scanline also sends out transmissions which can be obtained via a Scanline Receiver, which crew members will sometimes hand out.

Notably, Strayshot was highly involved in an investigation of Dr. Rajilich's notes, which culminated in September 2007, after several dedicated operatives broke the numerous encryptions on files and gained access to data nodes which gave the positions of an exile program known as 991.

Theptism, after he was involved with the disappearance of Cypherite liaison Viraconrida, and was keeping her imprisoned on a downed hoverbarge somewhere in the Real, was captured by the Merovingian liaison, MadHattah, and kept locked away in a prison construct.

Additionally, the newest member of Scanline, Trifid, is also the most recently deceased. Trifid was originally a member of E Pluribus Neo, who was not prominent until he defected to the Cypherite cause and became "Maskharah". After having plans to export weapons caches through the Matrix foiled by members of the E Pluribus Neo organization, Trifid was captured and interrogated, only to be rescued later by Scanline, and to become one of their crew. Resuming his original handle of Trifid, he was an active member of the crew until the end of the Truce, when his Emergency Jackout Protocol malfunctioned, and he was gunned-down by EPN liaison Reposco.

The Shiva appears in the Zion Archives. It can be briefly seen when the Nebuchadnezzar returns to Zion in the The Matrix Reloaded, landed in Bay 10.

Shiva is the third form of God as the Destroyer, one of the Trimurti (popularly called the "Hindu trinity").

The name of the ship Vigilant means "watchful and alert", and its commissioning plaque reads "Mark XIII No. 32 Made in the USA Year 2106." Very fittingly, in the New International Version Mark 13:32 reads: "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

In Enter the Matrix, Vigilant crewmember Axel has been captured by Agents. The crew of the Logos happen to turn up at the airport, just as he is being transported, and they undertake a perilous rescue attempt, Niobe gets him off of the plane where he lands in the hands of an Agent. Ghost continues to pursue when Axel buckles his seatbelt and carreens the car out of control, killing the agent, but severely wounding his leg, which is indicated in The matrix Reloaded. He has a leg brace. The Logos is a hovercraft in the Matrix trilogy. ...

When Morpheus makes his case to the Zion Council that only Neo can save them from the oncoming Machine onslaught, Soren is the first to offer the services of his ship and his crew to Morpheus's plan. The Vigilant crew is assigned to hack in to the City's power grid to disable the security systems of the Source building.

As Soren and his team make their way to the control room, in the real world, a group of sentinels has located the Vigilant. The sentinels fire a tow bomb at the ship, and as Axel and Jax rush to take action, a walkway collapses (Weakened Earlier when Axel's limp dislocates one side of the rail), causing Axel to fall, and a sharp prong from the walkway to Impale Jax. The bomb hits the ship and explodes, killing all on board. Inside the Matrix, Soren and his crew collapse as their real world bodies die.

Unnamed ships

There are five unnamed ships included in the Matrix comics. One is a ship used for carrying potentials and is unnamed. Another crashed in the fetus fields, and only one of its crew members survived. He found a strange man who knew nothing of the Matrix but was convinced that the fetus harvesters were dragons. A third was stolen by a group of rebels who attracted agents for the thrill of it and were not allied with Zion. The fourth ship was used to destroy money that had a virus attached to it and the fifth and final unnamed ship was used by a crew that saved a girl who could change her residual self image.
