  • With Transwarp Drives and Blasters, the Eros Researcher can total 1400ly (about 0.07 kT/ly) of non-stop movement with a full tank but no cargo, and 1000ly (about 0.11 kT/ly) when completely full
  • The Eros is an excellent "filler" ship to build at starbases for the Lizards. They can be used for HISSing, cooling planets, for money transport, and even towing, as needed. If you can afford it, put good engines on it, but if you can't afford it, well, put warp 1 engines on it and overclock as needed. The Eros can have a warp 1 engine going at warp 9 and still make one 81ly hop, albeit at a ruinous fuel efficiency. Sometimes it makes sense! Transwarp Eroses are a backbone utility ship for moving light but vital stuff around, like money.


The Eros Class Research Vessel does not currently have any addon-exclusive abilities.
