Dragon is a c/6 orthogonal spaceship that was discovered by Paul Tooke in April 2000. It was the first c/6 spaceship to be found. The spaceship functions by pushing two beehives forward. For almost six years all other known c/6 spaceships were flotillae involving toads[1] and at least two dragons until Tooke found 274P6H1V0 in March 2006. It was the smallest known c/6 orthogonal spaceship until the discovery of 56P6H1V0 in 2009.

Dragon has sparks that can support tagalongs, that are shown below. The left one has the same frontend as a half of 56P6H1V0. The frontend of the right one reminds Bulldozer and can in turn support its pushalongs.
