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 Steward-C Class Civilian Vessel
After the initial expansion, the faction found the need for a more available for its civilians so an order was put in and this is the result. The Steward-C doesn't have any form of weapons, little in defenses and has been reported the reactor doesn't always start on the first try. What the ship lacks it makes up in affordability and flexibility by including an entire cargo floor which many have taken the initiative to modify to add a variety of "new features".
Even as more specialize ship options are available the Steward will always be symbolized as every Miner's first ship to roam the stars.

- Engineer/ Cargo Bay
- Additional Space
Builder's note: When I built this ship I tried to keep the variety of blocks down to a minimum while still have the typical faction's details to make this ship more viable as a starter ship. Left space open on the bottom floor to leave space for modifications depending on the player's needs. The ship has the ability to dock via USD port or on platforms via the docker on the bottom. Overall I like the simplicity of this ship while still having some character to it. May create other variants of this ship but we'll see. Leave a comment if you have any suggestions for the ship or for the faction.
