"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, is a timeship utilized by the Legends.


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.

      Ray's quarters were shared with Nora. The quarters had a shelf with his display of various mementos of being a Legend, such as a photo of him and Nate, his shrink gauntlet, his drawing of being knighted as Sir Raymond of the Palms and more. There is also a mannequin that held the A.T.O.M. Exosuit.[2]

    • The Waverider is equipped with holographic indigenous camouflage projection technology that keeps it hidden while in the past.
    • Ray Palmer speculates that The Waverider utilizes ionic propulsion. Stein however disagrees and says that's impossible since even advanced technology could not sustain an ionic reaction. But Ray notes that it would be possible if you stabilized the quantum flux.
    • Removing the time drive of the Waverider will make it unstable and cause it to explode which was done in the original Multiverse by Rip Hunter to delay mallus at the cost of his life.
    • Ray says that when The Waverider's coefficient of sinusoidal depleneration reduces, It seems to inversely hyper-celerate.
    • If the Waverider suffers damage to the Neuromorphic Interface for Gideon's logic and navigation matrix it would render Gideon non-functional, which happens after the Waverider makes an emergency landing after fighting chronos. They had to replace it with a self-learning Neuromorphic Cortex developed by PalmerTech.
    • At one point early on with their adventures Ray was working on something called a Quantum manifold presumably related to the Propulsion systems of the Waverider.
