Sleek and High-tech

A Corporate Wars-era ship still in use today, the Osprey was Nanotrasen's answer to the Syndicate's mighty Starfury battlecruisers. It boasted an integrated artillery beam to destroy large vessels from afar. In the current age, the necessity for these expensive and high upkeep designs has waned, resulting in the majority of these vessels being refitted as relatively comfortable exploratory cruisers, with high tech artillery arrays being repurposed as scientific components and Gunnery AI being reprogrammed to serve a more generalist function.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

How Should I Pilot This?[edit | edit source]

The strength of the starting load-out of the Osprey should not be ignored giving you freedom to do pretty much whatever you want, however you may want to start immediately thinking of solutions to your power generation before the amount of engines and equipment drain your batteries dry. Try and accrue sufficient research to build better generators with higher quality parts. Also, Decide early on whether you want to make use of your AI as this will necessitate you setting up cameras around the ship so it can see anything or having a deployable shell to be a fancy borg.
