Any craft with a volume of 100 tons displacement (1350 kilolitres) or more, which is equipped with a maneuver drive, is a spaceship. In naval terminology, armed spaceships are called boats.
Any spaceship equipped with a jump drive (and thus capable of interstellar travel) is known as a starship.
Starships and spaceships may be commercial, private, or military.
