The RSI Aurora ES (also known as Essential) is the most common "starter ship" for new flyers across the galaxy. The Aurora ES boasts a rugged base construction along with ample room for upgrades. Each of the Aurora series is specialized in some way, but the ES is a true "jack-of-all-trades" for the enterprising pilot.

In-game description

The Aurora is the modern day descendant of the Roberts Space Industries X-7 spacecraft which tested the very first jump engines. Utilitarian to a T, the Aurora is the perfect beginner's ship: what it lacks in style it makes up for in ample room for upgrade modules.
