-Here's a little bit of back story to our ship -
Following the successful release of the Outer Ring Excavations [ORE] resource extraction vessel, Primae. ORE has further developed a new innovative and supporting sub-class of the Primae vessel to aid in the transportation and excavation of highly volatile resources that may harm the much larger and much more expensive primary vessel. This new additional space ship is aptly named the Auxilirae.
The Auxilirae (116m) is a lightly armed transport vessel dependent upon the Primae (854m) to ferry dangerous resources under the protection of it's larger escort. Carrying resources within eighteen different containers the Auxilirae has the ability to discharge the volatile contents at a moments notice to hinder any chance of explosive damage, be it from opposing vessels, hazardous environments or chemical imbalance. As well as resource transportation the Auxilirae is equipped with a controlled magnetic grapple to seize nearby mineral-rich asteroids for the Primae to extract and process.
Although the Auxilirae is for purely industrial use it is noted that on more than one occasion explosive chemical resources were purposefully expelled onto a rival vessel with disastrously effectual results.
