How do you cruise around space?

What model ship are you using? Babylon 5 names or regular?

I personally use the regular names as I am unfamiliar with Babylon 5.

I roll in a scout' ship most of my runs because I manage a small crew and I feel like I'm buzzin' around space in the Ebon Hawk.

I usually use my own names rather than random ones. It's my habit in roguelikes to use naughty/obscene names when I have a choice. It takes some of the sting out of dying when you can see a funny name on the high score table...

And yeah, I prefer the scout ship, too. Some players on the old forum swear by the troop transport, though, so I don't know.

I could see the upside to using the troop transport due to the initial crew capacity, but c'mon! Ebon Hawk!

Umm It's been quite some time since I last played, but finding that abandoned Battleship on a planet was quite handy. 8-)

I tried to make the LRF a more viable starting option (It always was the black sheep of the starting ships famiily) One additional point to spend on character creation, Drones, comes fully armored and with 3 points you can buy something for that empty 2nd weapons turret.

I wonder if any of you guys tried it lately and what your impressions where if you did.

Actually, Magellan I've quite taken to that ship because I noticed the free point. I noted that it is a very nice Pirate ship as it gives me the right advantages I need to start off my career looting helpless merchants.

So it's overpowered?
Maybe I could up the number of points you get, and increase prices (and lower monetary/Item amounts) so that that 1 point more isn't worth so much?
