Very nice Viking and when it comes to exploration like yourself I prefer to go the solitary route and will attempt to do so with a few NPC's on board my Aquila. I'd like to grab the Carrack but being such a large ship I have a feeling soloing on it could prove difficult, but that said I might grab a CCU token for the Aquila to Carrack and just hang on to it in case I change my mind once more details come to light. It's certainly a very cool ship that many seem to regard as the best explorer. I agree the game does seem to be geared heavily for co-op play and I can't imagine carrying large amounts of cargo in a Hull-C without an escort once you get out of the safer areas. I guess that's probably a good thing though, brings people together. :)

I think that's a great use of the Idris mate and it's good to see you forming a group of real players instead of NPC's to help man it. I'll need to do the same at some point, though I think I'll do that after I've settled in the game and have some credits to my name as I'm in no rush to take it out. As strange as this may sound it's more important for me to have the ship than it is to actually fly it. I think I just like having the peace of mind know that when I want to take it out, it's there waiting for me. :)

You know, I'd very much enjoy exploring with you and others in RSQ's Explorer Club (if you have anything similar to that). I think friends will benefit from staying close in the game. (I'm also in the process of establishing a meta org. that can gather the good and independent forces under one loose syndicate umbrella. Stay tuned for more info later!) ;)

And I'll need escort on most of my trips into the unknown, plus when I'm loading up the Hull C with expensive cargo. Even with cargo insurance I'd want to have escort because I don't want any pirate to get a single intact container if he destroys my ship. And I've said from the start of this project that I'll never give up so much as a potato when pirates demand I give them my cargo. I'll simply not reply and then try to flee. If it's not possible to get away, then I'll fight to the bitter end - every time!

The Idris will have many different types of modules/pods, I think. The bigger the ship the more options you'll probably have. So the frigate will fit into many roles. The downside to such a big ship is of course its size, which is limiting in some situations, but I think the versatility will outweigh the disadvanteges in the long run. It's also possible to bring smaller explorer ships in the Idris' hangar bay, such as the Origin 315p, which then can travserse smaller jump points or take a closer look inside a dense asteroid field, for instance.

Sounds like a great plan. Watching Star Cast, the Idris is supposed to be an incredible tough nut to crack according to Chris, even with Retaliators and their torpedoes.

Can you link that Star Cast Simon or to the part where they're talking about what CR said about the Idris?

They only briefly discussed it but http://youtu.be/3hmT-sQ4bd8, not sure exactly where as my iPad is muted as I'm at work.

Found it and wow...

So according to these guys CR says that 5x Retaliators alone won't be enough to take a Idris due to capital ship level shielding and armament.

Well, for all their firepower, Retaliators are big targets for big guns. You'll need to screen them in order to get them close enough deliver to their payload regardless.

That's pretty awesome news about the Idris and I'm glad that I picked one up as it really sounds like it's going to be a force to be reckoned with. That said the Talli doesn't sound like it's going to be useful to me so despite how much I like this ship I can see myself trading this in for another ship like the Crucible.

@Deliverence: My Retaliator became a Aquila for now. I still have my Phoenix so having 2x Constellations seem somewhat of a waste but at the same time it comes with a different cockpit, fighter and tank than what the Phoenix has. There's still a better than average chance it'll become a Hull D or Orion or some other expensive ship but for now I'm content with it being a Aquila. Although that didn't stop me from picking up several Retaliator to Aquila and Aquila to Retaliator CCUs since they were free.

@Kamikazi - An excellent idea mate I've just picked up a bunch of CCU tokens myself to hang on to for now. With the anniversary sale around the corner and the new info about the Talli it's really got me thinking about my ships and I'm having such a hard time deciding what to do.
Like yourself I have the Phoenix and the Aquila and I don't like owning two of the same ship so I'm thinking of upgrading the Aquila to the Carrack, though I have serious concerns about flying this solo, mind if I ask what are your thoughts are on this?
