Mass Effect Andromeda - Ark Ship Hyperion

Arks are massive starships that were constructed by the Andromeda Initiative to carry 100,000 volunteer colonists from among the races of the Milky Way to the Andromeda galaxy. Each Ark transport 20.000 of them.
The original plan would have the Initiative Base Nexus and the first wave of arks arrive at the same time, but in reality the arrivals were scattered both in terms of time and location. Ark Hyperion only arrived 14 months after the Nexus in year 2819.

The Arks itself were more than 1500 meters in length with a typical crew of around 800 crewmember to operate the ship optimal. Due to the amount of automation, it is also possible to lead the ship in emergencies with fewer than 100 persons.
As massive as the arks are, they are still civilian ships by design and virtue. Even though the arks has some supply of firearms for its security personnel, plus a small fleet of shuttles and fighter crafts, the arks are totally unarmed. Still, the strength of its construction came to display time and again, as proven by surviving a gauntlet through the Scourge, which would typically decimate smaller vessels.

Although the arks were never designed for landing on terrestrial surface, the Hyperion made an emergency crash landing on Meridian, which it managed to come out largely intact, and slated to form the core for the future Port Meridian.

It looks like humanity's attempt to duplicate the design of the Citadel.

Yep, both the Nexus Station and the Ark Ships looks like Mini Citadels.

I haven't played Andromeda all the way through, so I have to ask if there are any keepers around this time?

Keepers? You mean the worker-Keepers like on the Citadel? No, there are no in Andromeda.

So, keepers weren't kept.
