Description

The Meta-class is a small freight vessel, and even before the ICW was a common sight on the Frontier as a tramp freighter, running independent contracts between the myriad outposts of the area (with, occasionally, some smuggling or mining on the side). Since the collapse of Nanotrasen’s logistics network in the Frontier region, Meta-classes operating in this capacity have exploded in popularity, and are likely to remain a very common sight wherever larger corporations such as Donk! Co. have yet to establish market dominance.

Gameplay

A bit of a fixer-upper at the start as its name suggest the meta-class freighter comes with a very generous cargo bay for builds and storage. Of special note however is that this ship includes a fully functional Hydro bay with seed vendor allowing you to grow many exotic plants unavailable to to other ships with a skilled botanist.

Quick bullet rundown of features and equipment:

  • Fully stocked cantina, kitchen and hydro bay
  • autolathe, cell charger and recharger available from the start
  • Functioning Cargo consoles
  • Generous Cargo bay space
  • Janitorial supplies

How Should I Pilot This?

Your ship starts the round off trashed. Your first objective should probably be to salvage some glass from your ship or dig some sand to make bulbs so you can actually see. Past this it would be wise to clean up the gibs and blood present around the ship before they can spread disease to your crewmates. Past this you should consider ordering or trading for hardsuits as your ship only starts with two hardsuits initially which can severely limit the amount of people that can work outside the vessel.
