I was talking with a friend while playing yesterday, and he started talking about how some of the ships remind him of other famous sci-fi ships. Like the eagle reminding him of a small Klingon Bird of prey, and the Corvette reminding him of a miniature Imperial Star Destroyer.
Then I jockingly asked "Which one would be the MF then?" and he went completely silent for a while, before listing off every characteristic of the Falcon and debating with himself which ones should be considered to find the E:D equivalent.
What we got was:
- a ship meant for cargo transport. (multipurpose also considered since they can do cargo)
- capable of customisation outside of its original purpose.
- Very fast Hyperspace (or in E:D, large hyperspace range).
- Fast but resilient.
- capable of combat.
- Medium size.
He thought the best fit was the Cobra Mk3. I am personally considering between Python and Krait Mk2.
What are your thoughts?
