"You are on a 22nd century timeship, designation WR-2059, currently situated in the temporal zone."
Gideon to Zari Tarazi[src]

The Waverider, designation WR-2059, was a timeship utilized by the Legends.

After using the Waverider for six years, the Legends' lost the Waverider to a younger Bishop's Waverider blowing it up leaving them stranded in 1925. Since the destruction of the Waverider, the Legends have used Gwyn's time machine, and "Evil Gideon" and her team have used another Waverider.


In 2015, Rip Hunter recruited the Legends in order to fix the timeline by traveling on the Waverider.

Before the Time Bureau was shattered, the Waverider was the property of the United States government.

After the Tarazi family dinner for the patriarch's birthday, Behrad and Nate kidnapped Zari to keep her from talking to her parents about Behrad's use of the Air Totem. She walked through a portal into the Waverider and Gideon told her where she was when she asked.[1]

Sara told Gideon to open the ship's cargo bay door to expel Atropos into the Temporal zone, but the Fate grabbed Sara's ankle, forcing Clotho to grab the Hell sword and cut off Atropos' hand, to save Sara and the two pieces of the Loom that Atropos was attempting to claim.[2]

The Waverider was parked in a park in Central City when Mick Rory exited and apologized to Lita for not seeing her because he had been in Hell; he requested a father-daughter weekend with her, but she refused, citing that she needed to study for a history test, until Mick made the Waverider visible, impressing Lita and causing her to change her mind and wish to ride.

Meanwhile, Clotho was manipulating the Loom of Fate; since she was not powerful enough to handle such potent magic solo, an explosion occurred which disabled the ship.

After Ava Sharpe repaired the ship,[3] Gary Green transported books from John Constantine's house to the Waverider so that the others could find a way to become immortal and powerful enough to help Clotho with the Loom. They read about the Chalice of Dionysus and flew to Hudson University to use it.

The Fates aboard the Waverider.

Later, after Astra Logue gained temporary immortality, she was approached by Lachesis,[4] and the two with Atropos stole the ship, leaving the Legends stranded in England and Gary alone with Gary Jr. II to face them. The Fates deactivated Gideon giving them total control. Ultimately, Gary was captured, but was able to keep Astra from killing him. Instead, Astra was killed by Atropos for not doing it. When Clotho used a time courier to board the ship and to escape the England Zombie Apocalypse, Gary handed her the Loom's pieces before being killed himself.[5]

During Loomworld, the Waverider was replaced by the USS Faterider on the show Star Trip.

The Legends escaped the fictional shows of Clotho Productions[6] and sought to end the rule of the Fates; they sent half the team to find the Waverider, which they did in a junkyard without Gideon onboard. Zari Tomaz used her engineering skills to start the ship but she needed Steel to act as a conductor for the wiring. Piloting the time-ship, Ava retrieved the other Legends but left Mick behind as they time-jumped four months into the future to keep from crashing as the Loom of Fate exploded.

Four months later, Mick boarded the Waverider with his daughter, Gary, and Mona Wu. The Legends brought Clotho onboard and talked to her about the greatness of free will, but it was Lita who convinced her, causing Clotho to take to the Legends the Hell weapons that were stored there to help them to win their final battle with the Encores.

The next morning, as Behrad Tarazi worked on reconnecting Gideon to the ship, he started bleeding profusely as his body could not handle the opposing timelines represented by Zari Tarazi and Zari Tomaz. Tomaz bid farewell to her friends and returned to the World between worlds.[7]

In mid-2020, Esperanza Cruz had a weapon powerful enough to blast a hole into the Waverider; she was coaxed to board the ship and to help to find Sara Lance.[8] Before the Legends could board, the ship was destroyed by another Waverider.[9]
