Just getting up and sipping my coffee while looking over the stats here.

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/18438-Introducing-The-MISC-Odyssey

The mere fact that it collects the fuel it needs for exploration and does not rely on anybody coming out to fuel you immediately makes this the defacto long term explorer, better than the Carrack!

Grabbing one immediately for myself and another for our exploration division.

Video and thoughts incoming.

Also, what are the advantages of the Carrack?

Better armor?
Probably
Also likely faster or more agile
Comes with Rover and Pisces (which also is a disadvantage, because it can really only transport snubs)
Has Drones
Modular Cargo containers (who knows what modules it might get or not, maybe one of them might make it self sufficient)
Has what probably is a Component Repair Station at some point

I guess drones might be important, we dont have enough info on that.
Unfortunatly not but it seems likely at some point to get drones with a limited mining capability and small refineries that could have a place in a module. Of course that might not really be viable to explore as long as the Odissey it might be enough to prolong the operation a little if it's worth it or not get stranded. The higher cargo capacity might also be important. The carrack won't run out of supplies as fast and probably doesn't need to refine/refuel as much.

Edit: I overlooked the hydrogen intakes of the Odyssey though...

Just a reminder before you push the buy button; You can't fly the thing right now, collect a few ccu's and get it at half price (paid mostly with store credits) next year.
Or get 2 for the price of 1. Sell one off and pay almost nothing for the other (if you don't want 2).

I did that this year... had a lot of store credits. Now have none, starting over...But my wallet and the credit card that is now safely stored in my wife's purse (so I don't buy any ships...) is happier.

Having a discussion about the T1 vs T2 beds in Discord atm.

When will you need a T1 bed if you can respawn with a fresh body in a T2?
Good question --> I'm guessing that if you are DEAD dead (i.e., your revival time expires) you need a T1 bed, other wise if you are revived within the time frame you can respawn in a T2 bed. So, big ship explosions --> T1, minor accidents with ramps & stairs should be T2 lol

Overall...I think the Odyssey is a miner's wet dream...you take the Odyssey out (with a Prospector in the bay, even) so you can find and mine Quantanium so that you can go out and stay longer to find and mine more Quantanium so that you can go out and stay longer and mine more Quantanium so that ... you get the picture.

I'm guessing that CIG won't allow you to refine anything other than Quantanium, BUT, when you've filled up that 250 SCU cargo hold with all the Quantanium you can find, you can head home and buy a bunch of space ships with in-game aUEC...and take a shower ha ha

At some point they will catch on and say, hey starting now you can only upgrade a ship twice. But until that time, abuse it while you can.
Odyssey for 255 here :)

Edit : oppsy hit wrong key, not 205 but 255 ;)
