The analogy you are using for an argument might be committing a base rate fallacy (you are ignoring important specific characteristics that the two compared examples do not share)
** The imicus does not require Omega status to fly, The Rorqual does
** The imicus requires minimal skill training time (or injector use) compared to the rorqual
** Does the pilot (of either ship) intend to generate both positive cash flow and profits without making a credit card investment? If the answer is yes (and the other two issues are accounted for), the comparison might have some merit.
There are three major reports a corporation uses to demonstrate its current financial well-being:
Profit and Loss
It is fully possibly to look incredibly good on some of these but horrible on others. There is a correlation between Ignoring the ISK value of skill-points, monthly subscriptions costs and the “Minerals I mine are free” mentality. They all deal with transactions that frequently exist solely on the Balance sheet report.
You might be able to make tons of ISK with an activity you do in this game. However, if that income generating plan requires the monthly investment of a credit card or sacrificing potential future growth (ie sacrificing skill point gains), I would argue that your business model is not truly successful.
