I think it will Rec. The decon limpets not only remove the goo, but repair the hull. I used a class 3 and it repaired one point. Your class 5 might do better, but not sure if this repair effect is class-based, or it just pops a point regardless. That alone extends endurance and makes it all a little easier. Fire 10 limpets over the course of the session, gain an extra 10% hull really.

I wish there were some incursions right now (are there?). I'd like to combine scout hunting and rescue missions for a bit.

Nice Clipper WC. Finally, a role I can see for that ship. Hmm.....

Animals flee this hell, the hardest stones cannot bear it for long. Only men endure
