Starship Hector, originally released as Hector'87 (ヘクター'87?),[2] is a shoot 'em up video game developed and published by Hudson Soft for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Similar to Xevious, the player's starship has two modes of fire: one to tackle flying enemies and one for ground-based ones.

Hector is something of a follow-up to Hudson Soft's earlier Star Soldier; the main background music was even reused as background music in Super Star Soldier. The theme also appears in the Wii game Kororinpa, which itself has many themes from older Hudson Soft games. The game is also released in Super Famicom as part of Caravan Shooting Collection.
