The End and New Beginnings
- Game version:
The Miners Coalition have suffered many setbacks in their short time in space and many more in their long history.
During the Coalitions initial foray into the stars they discovered large quantities of usable resources in the abundant asteroid belts surrounding their system.
Groups large and small within the Coalition combined their resources to expand out into neighboring systems in the hope of striking it rich and beat out their rival factions.
The Coalitions people have had to adapt to the new way in a short time. This has caused technology to advance in starts and spurts as new issues have to be worked around.
Even their ships have been adapted to the harsh conditions within the belts from civilian transport and construction vessels.
Eventually, others took notice of the budding Coalition and pirates began to raid and pillage many outposts.
Much of the Miner's territory was lost due to the speed of the expansion only allowing minimal defenses being created and trained.
The various factions within the Coalition soon saw their predicament and confirmed the need to combine all remaining resources.
Soon many of their remaining ships had been retrofitted with weapons and armor plates instead of drills and grabber arms.
Now the people of the Miners Coalition must work together to maintain what territory they still own and hopefully someday retake what they’ve lost.
MC Skiff-S Class Salvager Craft
The Skiff-S was created during times of desperation when resources were dangerously low a new source was needed. So why not reuse resources already spent. The Skiff-S Class Salvager Craft created to search out and bring back resources from derelicts. The craft is also capable of minor excavating although not it's primary purpose. The Skiff-S was created during a time of strife but will still remain long after.
Builder's note: Not much to say about this ship other then it's a modified shuttle to meet the needs of a salvager for the faction. In the future, I will either create a medium or large class vessel that will house several of these salvager crafts as a form of a Mining Barge. Of course open to any ideas for this vessel or for the faction.
