PLEASE help i cant find my error

Next, we need getter and setter methods for our member variable. Let's start with the getter method. Add a method to get the value of shipType.
public class Spaceship{
  public String shipType;
 public String getshipType(){ return shipType;

Getters and Setters in Java have a variable name convention of getVariableName. Therefore, the variable name should be getShipType, not getshipType. Also, you're missing a closing curly bracket after the return statement. :-)

Post back if you're still stuck.
