The Prospector is a small sized mining ship manufactured by MISC. Designed as a single person operated vessel, it features a telescopic mining arm with interchangeable lasers, up to 16 detachable collapsible ore storage containers[1] and comfortable living quarters.

Features

  • Mining Laser: The Prospector has a retractable and adjustable arm which has a Size 1 mining laser hard-point, giving you the ability to interchange different mining lasers that are specifically designed for certain types of minerals.
  • Scanner: The ships scanner has been designed to targeting pockets directly, pin-pointing specific resources and helping to extracting just that type of mineral you are specifically looking for.
  • Living Quarters: Despite it being a industrial vehicle, the Prospector still has a spacious living area which includes a bed, bathroom and a small kitchenette, essential for those longer mining runs.
  • Detachable Containers: When the vehicles storage containers are full with ore, these can be easily detached and transferred to another ship for the ore to be either sent to be processed or to be sold raw. The Prospector can carry up to 16 of those containers and use up to 4 of them at any time.
  • Cargo: The vehicle has the ability to hold up to 32 SCU's of raw ore in 4 external containers as well as holding 650K μSCU of internal stowage.
  • Weapons: With its two gun hard-points that can hold Size 1 guns each, the ship has not been left defenseless.

History

Chloe Raznick was an owner and operator of one of the first 2925 MISC Prospectors off the assembly line. She had made the legal purchase of several hundred parcels of former military ground testing area on Ferron II in the hopes of salvaging expended shells and claiming the small bounties on radioactive debris collection. While in the process of surveying her lot, she discovered a deep chasm into which she navigated her Prospector. There she came across what is now known as the 'Chessex Lode'. A massive discovery of previously ignored raw materials which made a her fortune. Within days of the discovery, Prospector sales shot through the roof as people rushed to try their hands at this new career.[2]
