I am an explorer. Always have been, always will be. But a man’s gotta eat, and more importantly, a man’s gotta upgrade his ship.
Exploration data doesn’t pay very well.
With a view towards a future out in the deep Black, I decided to sell the Blue Sun, my trusty Asp Explorer, and purchase a (slightly used) Lakon Type-7 Transporter. It’s ugly, it’s uncomfortable, but it can fit a decent amount of cargo.
I am currently hauling marine equipment and Palladium, Gold and Machinery. I now know what it feels like being dead inside, but the prospect of a bigger and better exploration ship (it doesn’t have to be bigger) keeps me going.
