The downsides are that it can only be purchased with new money & this particular ship doesn't show as having a jump drive for some reason. I can understand the base model that comes with the Carrack not having a Jump drive, but the upgraded version definitely should since it was basically described as a standalone exploration vehicle. I'm not being salty, just pointing out what doesn't make sense that is hopefully a mistake that CIG will later correct.

Yes I was going to buy a ship anyway for cash for an LTI token. But I guess i would have to buy S42 again, not that I am that worried about playing it.
will sleep on it and do the math.

Did you see the size of the Pisces? When The 85X came out, I used to go in full melee battle with other TESTies, hit me if you can, but I will pinch you to death with my 4 peashooters. The Pisces is similar in size, it even has room for 3 people and also has some cargo space. Where do you want to put the jump drive?

While I understand your point, I wish it had a jump drive so that it could be used to scout & document jump points that are too small for the Carrack itself.

This is the page with *ALL* the different Pisces packages. Note, the Standalone SC package is $55 and the same with SQ42 is $75 (make sure you scroll to the bottom).

Re: Jump drives, the Pisces is supposed to have one...the Expedition model is supposed to be the same, except it comes with the extra guns. It may be good to get CIG to clarify that. FYI, a lot of starter ships do NOT come with a Jump drive, you have to buy one and add it later.

So does that mean your ships you buy with that account have LTI? You can melt your account? This I didnt know.
Not your account, but you can melt all the ships in your account. But to be able to play you have to have at least one game package.
While I understand your point, I wish it had a jump drive so that it could be used to scout & document jump points that are too small for the Carrack itself.
Exactly this!

I kinda like the Pisces, but since it requires $93 of new money (tax and SQ42 included) to replace my original game package, I'm not going to. Besides, I'd lose Legacy Alpha, though that currently means nothing.

Hmm this is a question I've also asked myself...
ATM I have a mustang package and an Avenger titan, buyed for having a phisical cargo hold and a better weapon loadout, honestly If I haven't bought the Avenger I'll seriusly tink about it, melt my Mustang and get the Pisces, then invest some money into a bigger ship, now.. well it copuld be an option, but not so sure.

Do your math and see if that take you some advantage.
If you plan to buy a bigger ship and have some to melt that could be an equivalent for the Pisces then it can be a good option...
