The first era has 7 (+ 2 bonus) engines - 6 cargo and 1 passenger (+ 1 cargo and 1 passenger bonus).  On the research screen, follow the solid line links of an engine's upgrades in order to have the next engine available. Not all upgrades for an engine need to be researched to unlock the next engine. The era 1 engines are researched in the sequence given below.

Usually the goal of this era is to reach The Falcon engine. The reason why is his great Speed and Acceleration.
