    Since The Claw is subscriber's June Ship of The Month, I temporarily switched to it from bugged Starfarer.
    So far I've managed to bust two popular myths:
    1. No, Reclaimer doesn't need an escort to defeat a rouge Andromeda,
    2. No, Reclaimer doesn't need to crash on Daymar's surface each time you want to visit Kudre Ore.
    You have to see it to believe it.

    And don't worry -- I ended each session by recklessly flying towards the Sun, under influence.

    Can't access the videos at work, but I can imagine all the glory! Well done.

    Were you able to get back on the elevator after stepping out on Daymar?

    I want to know what happens when you spike a Vanduul fighter, grab it with the claw and bring it inside whole. Has anyone done this?

    Absolutely -- Once I finished recording I fell through the floor on my way back to the bridge (known Reclaimer bug; falling down while entering habitation deck), so technically I crashed my head and probably multiple bones.​

    Absolutely -- see above ;) This is step #10 in my short Daymar Approach and Landing Procedure for Dummies (DALPFD):

    Check if at least one lift would reach the surface, otherwise you will die in here.

    That's just great. I have too many fighters as it is!

    Now that you have proven that you can land it safely on a moon surface, the real challenge begins. Can you land it in unconventional ways safely & still be able to both enter & exit the ship effectively? TEST pilots are well known for our creative parking jobs that tend to be works of "art".
