what personal ship do you guys use? i'm early in the game after having used the argon patriot game start, and so am still in the argon eclipse.
my play style leans toward capping, combat missions, and exploring, and less on the trade and empire building. so, a decent speed (175 or preferably faster) and handling, good laser energy, and good shields are more important to me than lots of cargo space (i do need enough cargo space though for a varied suite of missiles). and i will have a few transport ships for automated trading and picking up cargo after battles.
what do folks like for a ship that excels in the above? are there any m6 craft that might be well suited? i read in the manual that some m6 craft are as fast or faster than some m3+ ships, i think. this ship is ideally, tough, quick, handles well, and packs a punch.
