Centuries past, prior to the discovery and implementation of modern conveniences such as the Ageira engine, tradelanes and space elevators, mining in space was a thoroughly cruder affair than the monstrously efficient practice seen employed in modern times. Gargantuan vessels were crafted to house the engines necessary to make the journey to resource deposits in realistic timeframes, at which small mining vessels were deployed en masse to located and process mineral deposits for the long journey home.

While history had seen many revolutionary steps since those early days, the usefulness of independent mining craft has remained undiminished. With powerful multiphase sensory equipment the vessel is well equipped to scout ahead of heavier craft to find the richest deposits of mineral ore and robustly defended should she encounter something somewhat more hostile than floating rocks.
