This ship really caused me a lot of heart burn.  I like to be very strategic with my ship purpose and ensure that each one covers a niche or role that I'm interested in exploring in game.  I picked up a Mustang Gamma for racer/interceptor/fast cargo transport (10 SCU's, only racer with storage!).  I have a Cutlass for day-to-day affairs, a Super Hornet for combat, and a Retaliator for escort/bombing.  When I looked at the Star G, I asked myself how is this better than a Banu or a Hull C, and the answer I came up with is that this ship has 3 roles it can play out of the box.  

 

  • It can resource gather, refine, and sell.
  • It can haul a moderate amount of cargo (wet or dry)
  • It can support the fleet with refueling

That last role is useful for the owner's fleet and as a ship-for-hire.  It enables the owner to sell his services to any fleet in need of refueling with a potential for high risk/high reward.  

 

Another benefit to this ship is that with it's ability to gather and refine fuel you could effectively fuel your own fleet and negate that cost of day-to-day operations.

 

So, basically, with all that how could I not buy one?

Yep.  When they said it'll be hard to get in the PU, that is making my want to turn my back on it.  I'd like my SF to be a primary ship for me to operate, can't do that if I need to wait for the economy to get me replacement!   ^_^

 

Other than that, it seems like it'll be a good variant-visually and statistically different.  And with its size six? guns it'll be a BEAST.

I eventually caved and bought the Star-G upgrade but gonna let it sit un-applied in my hangar a bit longer until both ship internals are more fleshed out.

Yeah @Radra.... I did the same thing. I get that the G is not a fighter, but it's better armor and defenses lead me to believe that I may be able to take this beast into newly discovered fuel spots and refine without the need to pay an escort. Plus the exclusivity of a MISC Aegis hybrid sounds pretty cool. ...... I'll hold on application of upgrade until they show us more too.

Nice... from the last Q/A.... - I like picking up "rarer" ships during initial pledge..... and leave the more common ships as ones I will purchase in the PU (will likely save both wait time / travel time - to find where it is available + some $ or UEC since rarer ships will fetch a higher price from supply / demand)

 

 

 

In the PU, will it be more difficult to obtain the Star-G due to reputation requirements with a UEE military faction?

Yes, the Gemini will likely be produced in significantly lower numbers.

I decided to stick with the Gemini because its being more difficult to obtain in the PU should mean that trading it in for a base variant won't be difficult.  Hopefully the internal design will be awesome enough that it's not even tempting to do that.

First, I wasn't really sure whether to pick the Starfarer or Gemini variant. Shortly before the limited sale would be over.

 

After all, the difference is the purpose. The Starfarer (normal one) is clearly designed for these industrial / supply operations. It can hold more cargo. If I would simply do these things in relatively safe space, I could benefit more. By carrying more cargo each run. The Gemini would be stronger and better suited in any "managable" combat scenario, though. But it would have less cargo space. But LTI.

 

In the end, I got the Gemini. While uncertain before, I'm rather happy now. I think it'll be rather useful. Who knows where we'll operate? And hey, if need be, I can still buy a normal Starfarer or two for any "industrial operations" where additional weapon strength and armor would not be needed. But additional cargo.

 

If they say the Gemini will also be rarer to get later on ... + the LTI thing ... then I'm quite happy now. I'm still learning about the things though.

 

It says 7 crew are possible, I think. I doubt you really need all to effectively use it, though? I can imagine a pilot, someone to operate the collecting machine or the refinery, perhaps another or two to operate anything from the outside in EVA / hardsuits ... would the rest be possible passengers or also there to actually operate? Oh well.

As an owner of the gemini and an aspiring fuel merchant, I'd rather invest in a more secure vessel... even if I'm operating in secure space.  The idea of running a light(er)-armored fuel carrier that's not only slow, but a huge target (20m longer and 8m taller than the retaliator).  I mean, sure, If I was part of a fleet op with multiple ships protecting my starfarer, I might take that chance, but with the gemini, for instance I could respond to re-assignment to a not so safe system immediately without having to dock my starfarer to get a gemini (or wait for many escort ships).

That is exactly what I was thinking as well, having a Gemini that is more armored and better armed gives indeed a wider range of missions especially in less safe systems. Also it is going to be better if Imperium goes for a large fleet operation and having ships with greater survivability will make the Crucible team able to focus on repairing fighters. Definitely going to be very handy to have a Gemini for Vanduul deep space exploration.

      Hi all,  Looking to sell my account and ARMADA package with LTI.  Will be via paypal of course and will use escrow.com if you are concerned if you cover costs.
      Also includes a token for a buyback of a JUMP 890 with LTI.
      Looking to move this along.  
      Thanks,
      T.

      In the wee hours of the morning, myself and @Norem decided we'd have a bit of fun pushing the limits of the PTU 2.6.0k.
      After hours of trying to fit a Merlin into a Caterpillar with varying degrees of explosive failure, Norem decided to grab a Starfarer and attempt to carry the intrepid little Merlin to places never traversed by its kind and do battle with villainous pirates, for science!
      Credit to @Norem for staying patient and willing to go along with this crazy little venture.
