Hivenudger is a c/2 orthogonal spaceship found by Hartmut Holzwart in July 1992 and named by Bill Gosper. It consists of a pre-beehive escorted by four lightweight spaceships. In fact, any lightweight spaceship can be replaced by a middleweight spaceship or a heavyweight spaceship, so that there are 45 different single-hive hivenudgers (shown below), all of which have been synthesized.

Further hivenudger variants can be created by replacing either back spaceship with a sidecar, a Coe ship, a hammerhead, a Pushalong 1 or another hivenudger.
