      The couple of times I have gone exploring, I have fitted shields, guns and a cargo hold, for the sole reason that I don’t know what I’ll encounter. While none of them have been very big or powerful, it is just a matter of being prepared. I am totally aware of the reasons to NOT run these items, and I agree with them, it is just for my piece of mind, really. Although the introduction of Thargoids with change that everyone’s thinking.

      Check this reddit out, if you haven’t already:

      I totally feel for the commander affected, a lot of time went into that.

      I run this when exploring, she’ll go for 675ly before needing to refill 🙂

      Just noticed that the “victim” was with Li Young-Rui and the attacker Aisling Duval. Still a bit of a dick move.

      Given how rough I am at landings “INCOMING!!!”, shields are a must regardless of what I’m up to 😉

      having 1.5M exploration data onboard & no shields: priceless.

      Well, you know … “That hitherto unexplored planet, thousands of light years from nearest human habitation – looks like a Hudson supporter to me”

      or,

      “Some b@stard got to this planet before me and left a flag.  B#gger that! – Where’s your flag now?”

       


      Oi! That's Baron von Schnellenstein to you, mate. No, it doesn't matter that I'm an Imperial Prince!
