Prospector Kai

400t Prospector Kai
Tech Level 12

Combining mining and prospecting features in the same vessel, the Prospector Kai has it all – jump-2, prospecting sensors, 6 sets of mining drones, 21 tons of asteroid processor, and a mild self-defense capacity. But at a price – those jump engines aren’t cheap – the Prospector Kai costs more than four times what a Rockhound Kai or Belt Seeker costs. Then again, this ship can operate profitably by itself, and run away if enemies get close (and aren’t frightened off by the nasty plasma gun turret).

Typical crew for the Prospector Kai is a pilot, an engineer, and three mission specialists, but many are used by small families.
