Encyclopedia Entry[edit]

The Freight Drone was designed to partially automate the process of transferring cargo. The Freight Drone has an advantage over the freight beamer in that its operational range is far greater.


For ship to ship transfer, the Transporter device is the best transfer mechanism as they provide unlimited transfer without exterior exposure.

However, station to ship, Freight Drones work well. They will typically move more quickly than a capital ship. They're cheaper, have greater cargo capacity than Falcons and consume no docking bays when aboard ship. Furthermore, transporter devices provide don't permit a capital ship to purchase goods from most factories.

Comes pre-equipped with a 1 MJ shield and Special Command Software. Unlike the various fighter drones, the Freight Drone can fly independently for a whole hour.
