Sei (Pronounced ‘Say’) or Northern Whale in keeping with the O.R.E. Naming Convention.
While Outer Ring Excavations has already built ships for nearly every circumstance and situation. At least one situation still remains, Covert Mining.
Prospects can be used with existing BlackOps Battleships for Transport and T3 Cruisers for boost. Those ships are primarily designed for combat and offer no mining focus and leave activity limited to 10k Prospect holds unless you bring additional cargo fitted blockade runners still leaving you with a very limited haul.
A BlackOps capable T2 Porpoise or smaller scale lower mass T2 Orca [No SMB] to pair with the existing Covert Ops Prospect Frigates. Basically upscale ore hold and boost bonus from Porpoise specs and throw on standard Black Ops benefits. The Gallentean hull host would be greater than a Sin due to Mining Command Burst bonus and ore oold additions.
Power Creep? Negligible, Boost and ore hold capacity offered would still be less than Orca while hull cost would be significantly greater. This type of fleet has increased risk due extremely low combat capability since Prospects do not fly drones. Very high cost to loss vs potential reward.
Niche to fill: Covert moon or high value ore raiding.
