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-U Class Utility Craft
The Skiff-U was designed to offer a variety of service functions. From repairs to armor to boasting friendly vessel's shield output and even simpler tasks such as transferring cargo pods. The Skiff-U is found mostly on space outposts but has also been used to make emergency repairs out in the belts. The Skiff-U's ability to adapt to different environments is a well-needed craft for the Miners Coalition.
Builder's note: I wanted to have a support vessel in the faction but I have ideas for the medium support ships so needed something to make small repairs both on ships and stations. I wanted a different feature for this variant then the other variants so I made omnidirectional thrusters along with adding a canister of some sort which contains a logistic chamber. Overall I like how it turned out. Of course open to any ideas for this ship or for the faction.
