|“||This is the Icarus. Newest, fanciest ship to come out of orbital dock, built by the one corporation in the galaxy big enough to terraform planets all by itself.||”|
The Icarus is a spaceship built by the LaRoux Industries which later gets torn out of hyperspace and crashes into a terraformered planet, leaving no survivors except from Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen.
From the Greek Ικαρος (Ikaros), perhaps meaning "follower". In Greek myth Icarus was the son of Daedalus, locked with his father inside the Labyrinth. They escaped from the maze using wings devised from wax but Icarus flew too close to the sun and the wax melted, plunging him to his death.
