The MCB-01 is the designation of a space ship designed after the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek by Docithe. Construction began on June 9th, 2012 by Docithe. By November 2012, the MCB-01 became habitable as it neared completion. It is currently hovering in the Southern Badlands, over a small, shallow bay. Its current purpose is to be used in an upcoming space-faring roleplay planned by Docithe.
The MCB-01 is an immensely large space cruiser, built almost entirely from iron blocks by Docithe. It contains 11 decks, 8 of which are finished. The ship is outfitted with all amenities, such as a fully stocked mess hall, firing range, storage, space for farms, workspace for redstone engineers, weaponsmiths and chemists, a class room, and a meeting hall. The ship is also riddled with maintainence shafts and bays, those these are off limits to most of the ship's crew, excluding the Engineering department. The decks are connected through the 2 Turbo chutes in each section of the ship.

Deck H - Learning FacilitiesEdit
Deck H is the learning facilities on board the ship. It contains a classroom and the ship's library. Because of the amount of unused space, more facilities will likely be added in later. Access to Deck H is unrestricted.
Deck I is currently unfinished.

The MCB-01 is stated to be complemented by a crew of 100 crew members. Although anyone can apply to become a crew member, the selection process is rigorous, requiring a successfully completed interview with the Captain, tour of the ship, a class on board the ship regarding ship basics, and finally a written test that must be 100% complete. Also, the applicants are subjected to specific rules for the duration of their tour and class. Those that conduct themselves immaturely/poorly, or choose to break the rules will be ejected from the ship. The crew and their ranks are as follows:
- Docithe - Captain
- Eldergroan - Commander, First Officer
- AndyFox42 - Lieutenant, Chief Medical Officer
- holl97 - Ensign
- Mark3430 - Lieutenant - Chief Security Officer
- tater98 - Crewman

Although the MCB-01 was lost during the map change to the Retro Badlands, it still remains in memory. The MCB-01 and some of its crewmen were featured in Retro: The Badlands Movie, as themselves.
The MCB-01's memory went on to be reincarnated into the MCB-02. The MCB-02 was designed in The End world of the now-defunct MC Badlands FTB server as a bigger, more technologically advanced Star Crusier. The MCB-02's saucer section was much larger than that of the MCB-01 and contained most of the main functions and locations aboard the ship, with the aft end of the ship being dedicated entirely to engineering and redesigned to be much smaller and have the engine nacelles angled downward instead of upward. The MCB-02 maintained the same sizable security complement to safeguard the research being done aboard the ship, which was much more advanced due to the additions FTB brought to the game. The MCB-02, like its predecessor, was lost when the FTB server closed.
Recently, there has been the posibility of an MCB-03, though there can be only speculation at this time.
