The Expanse is a single-seat refinery ship manufactured by Musashi Industrial and Starflight Concern. It is designed to process front-line raw ore and then either transfer to a dedicated cargo ship or sell the refined ore itself. Ideal in combination with mining vehicles such as the Prospector and/or cargo ships like the Hull A, the Expanse shines as a critical part of an organized mining team.

Features

  • Reactors: The ship has 6 dedicated Reactors which can process different refining actions at the same time. These may be set to different refining processes and/or different materials.
  • Cargo pod mounts: Eight slots for expanded cargo pods (64 SCU) with another eight compressed above them. These allows the Expanse to pick up dropped ore pods from other mining ships and refine them immediately.[1]
  • Integrated tractor beams: These ensure that receiving raw materials and distributing processed ore are entirely hands-off procedures.
  • Weapons: Two Size 1 pilot controlled weapons offer protection when refining in the field.
