The arkship found on Far Away and, as the Guardians claim, the origin of the Starflyer alien. The main backers of the Research Institute are the Halgarth family. The ship has a top speed of 0.72 light speed. A flare was triggered in Far Away's star to send a message which is as yet still not deciphered. The interior of ship contains tanks that held water and a type of monocellular algae. The light spectrum wasn't designed to emulate that of the aliens’ home star, it was simply multi-spectrum.
