A Cyber-ship, Cybership, (COMIC: Assimilation²) Cyber-spaceship, (TV: The Invasion) Cyber-craft, (COMIC: Test Flight) Cybercraft (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Tenth Planet) or Cyber shuttle (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen) were the generic terms for the spacecraft used by the Cybermen. Cyber-ships, such as Cyber-Warships, (TV: Silver Nemesis) Cyberfighters and Cybercarriers, (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen) made up the Cyber-Fleets, Cyber-Armadas, and Cyber Legions of the Cybermen. Leading Cyber-ships were Cyber-Flagships and commanded by Cyber-Leaders. (COMIC: The Bidding War)


Early history[]

A Cyber-ship, either on a military mission or colonisation mission, crash landed in the village of Klimtenburg prior to the 19th century. The ship's reactor housing was shattered but the reactor itself shut down. The surviving Cybermen seeded the atmosphere, which created lightning storms, from which they would collect power for the ship. However, they were defeated by the Eleventh Doctor and the villagers. The ship deactivated after all the Cybermen were destroyed. (PROSE: Plague of the Cybermen)

20th century[]

In the mid-20th century, the CyberMondans of Mondas made use of saucer-shaped Cyber-Warships equipped with Cyber-shuttles, which were themselves equipped with escape craft. (COMIC: The Good Soldier)

The Cybermen of the early CyberFaction had a fleet of wheel-shaped Cyber-ships which were used to transport Cybermen from their mothership near the moon during an disastrous invasion attempt of Earth. The entire fleet was destroyed in transit when Zoe Heriot calculated the best trajectories for the intercepting missiles launched from Earth. (TV: The Invasion)

The Mondasian Cybermen made use of Cyber-craft accompanied by Cyber-rocket-planes. (COMIC: Test Flight)

In December 1986, the CyberMondans used a circular shaped spaceship to travel from Mondas to invade Earth. (TV: The Tenth Planet) After these Cybermen were destroyed along with their home planet, Professor Allison Williams led the scientific team which investigated the ship in Antarctica. The Cyberships leftover from the invasion were examined and exploited by humans, allowing them to make advances in space travel, leading Sarah Jane Smith to describe the return of Mondas as "both the greatest disaster and most astonishing blessing ever to have happened to the human race." (PROSE: The Power of the Daleks)

21st century[]

A Cyberman saucer. (TV: The Moonbase)

Another ship crash landed on Earth centuries prior. In 2011, the surviving Cybermen attempted to rebuild, but the ship and they were destroyed by the Eleventh Doctor and Craig Owens. (TV: Closing Time)

On 5 December 2021, a Cyber-Fleet of Cyber-Warriors, composed of the amassed Cyber-battalions, joined with the Dalek War Fleet as both factions accepted the Sontarans' deceitful offer of protection against the final Flux event. When the Sontarans released the Lupari shield, both fleets were destroyed. (TV: The Vanquishers)

On 15 October 2070, the Telosian Cybermen used saucer-shaped spaceships to land on the Moon in order to attack the Moonbase. (TV: The Moonbase, PROSE: Doctor Who and the Cybermen)

In 2079, the Cybermen of the late CyberFaction travelled in a spaceship to attack Space Station W3. (TV: The Wheel in Space)

Later history[]

A Cyber-ship approaching Nerva Beacon. (TV: Revenge of the Cybermen)

Following the Cyber-Wars, a single craft was used by the CyberNomads to journey to Nerva Beacon. While in flight, they maintained contact with their human agent, Kellman, through radio communications. After setting the beacon on a collision course with Voga, the Cybermen left in the ship. Commander Stevenson, following the Fourth Doctor's directions, redirected the rocket Skystriker into the craft, destroying it. (TV: Revenge of the Cybermen)

In 2526, the CyberNeomorphs had a fleet of ships waiting to attack Earth. (TV: Earthshock) They dispersed after their attempt to wipe out life on the planet was thwarted. (TV: Time-Flight)

On Telos, the Neomorph Cybermen captured a time vessel that landed on the planet. It needed at least three people to pilot it. (TV: Attack of the Cybermen)

An armada of wheel-shaped Cyber-ships commanded by a Cyber-Controller travelled from one universe to another an entered an alliance with the Borg, forming the Borg-Cyberman Fleet. The Cybermen eventually betrayed the Borg, leading the latter to form a truce with Starfleet and the Eleventh Doctor and they stormed the Cyber-Controller's command ship. Once the Borg Conciousness was free of Cyber control, all the Cyber-ships were set to self-destruct. (COMIC: Assimilation²)

Vessels of a similar design were used by the Cybermen of Cybus Industries which were part of the Alliance at Stonehenge (TV: The Pandorica Opens) and the new Mondas Cybermen in a battle against the Daleks. (GAME: The Doctor and the Dalek)

Rory Williams and the Eleventh Doctor infiltrated and caused the destruction of several ships in the Twelfth Cyber Legion to learn the location of Demons Run prior to their attack. (TV: A Good Man Goes to War)

A Cyber-Flagship in the 54th century. (COMIC: The Bidding War)

In the 5320s, a fleet of Cyber-ships, led by a Cyber-Flagship attacked the planet Nomicae. (COMIC: The Bidding War)

The Cyber Ships used during the Siege of Trenzalore. (TV: The Time of the Doctor)

Several Cyber Ships took part in the Siege of Trenzalore in an attempt to break through the force field put around the planet by the Papal Mainframe. The Cybermen made their own attempt to break the Siege including sending in a low-tech wooden Cyberman to Trenzalore but the Doctor stopped them. When the Daleks attacked the Mainframe and learned how to break the force field, the Cybermen followed in their wake and took part in the fighting that followed. They either all died or retreated in their ships over the course of the battle. (TV: The Time of the Doctor)

Cyberfighters, Cybercarriers, and the other craft that made up the Cyber-Empire's fleet took part in the Cyber-Wars, with human resistance fighters learning how to hack into Cyberfighters to use them for their own gain. Children growing up during the wars learned to do the same in order to survive. After the wars ended with near-total defeat for both sides, Cyberfighters were used by surviving Cybermen to hunt down surviving humans, (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen, The Timeless Children) with the partially converted-human Ashad using one to capture the Cyberium in 1816. (TV: The Haunting of Villa Diodati)

Returning to the future, Ashad, joined by two Cyberguards, made further use of this Cyberfighter and another, only for the latter to be taken by the Thirteenth Doctor. Using the knowledge of the Cyberium, the Cybermen found an abandoned Cybercarrier at the site of their greatest defeat during the Cyber-Wars, a ship carrying hundreds of thousands of warriors. With the Cyber-Army on the carrier, Ashad intended to rekindle the Cyber-Empire, turn it into a purely robotic race and use the death particle to wipe out all organic life in the universe. Ashad was eventually betrayed and killed by the Spy Master while his carrier and its army were destroyed by explosives planted by the Doctor and her friends. (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen, The Timeless Children)

Alternate timeline[]

In an alternate timeline shown to Jean-Luc Picard by the Eleventh Doctor, Klingon Birds-of-Prey were appropriated by the Cybermen when they conquered Qo'noS by 2418. In 2533, three Cyber-ships oversaw the cyber-conversion of Earth and the destruction of Starfleet Academy, the last holdout of free humanity in the galaxy. This timeline, a combination of N-Space and the Federation universe, was averted when the Doctor and Picard stopped the Cybermen before they could conquer the Borg Collective in 2368.
