The option to use it a troop transport, or a Command and Control ship, or even just a Night Club between the stars has me more than just a little intrigued. I just dont know that I'm willing to melt anything to pick one up at this time. Perhaps in the PU.

Sounds like a plan Capt.

I will more than likely wait until the PU for mine.

;)


Eat my words, I melted my Carrack and a Reliant. I have enough exploration craft.

I am starting to wonder if it's not a bit pricey for the size. At 80m, it's not significantly larger than the Retaliator and slightly smaller than the Starfarer. I'm not sure how they plan on having so much of what they showed in the video.

I'm wondering if it will end up growing a bit to have the kind of capacity they've been talking about.

It is quite tall and wide in the body though.

Keep in mind that the price is not just about size of the ship. It's also about the cost of the ship in-game. Expect this to be very expensive if you buy it in-game for UEC.

GENESIS STARLINER Q&A - PART 2 - https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm ... rliner-Q-A

A lot of interesting information. Favorite

Why are there seats and sleep pods? Wouldn’t It be better to incorporate lifepods, restraints for takeoff/landing and sleeping area into one place (thinking that it would be something like the Connie’s ejection pod system)

Seats were placed in there for take off/lift off. We designed it this way to better fit logicially and aesthetically with what the norm of travel is now and how we handle it in other ships. We could however have a variant where all seats are removed. We have the technology. And I would love to see more variants be built up for this ship using the modularity of the interiors. I think this is a great challenge for the community to design interior layouts, and come up with Roles.

I would love to challenge the community to make the ultimate Starliner. You need to be able to explain its Role, purpose, and give us an interior layout that if and when the winner is chosen, we could build out using our current assets and functionality already planned. This ship really is a chameleon. No additional hardpoints, and use the stock model as a base.

I'm interested in this as a profession, but I would want a smaller ship to start off with. I'll wait and see what smaller "Ferries" they come up with. :)

Nice. The hull really is a nice system. With large rooms and multiple decks it should be very very flexible as a non offensive type ship.

I am very excited about this ship. If I have a spare hull that is close in price when the ccu time comes I may get two of them. :D
