    To be fair, we were all guilty of buying the Orion the first time around. It's a mixture of wanting to try something new after a good deal of time with the Tarsus, and more importantly, indulging in the novelty of spending our hard earned cash on the only ship we could afford :D

    Can't imagine too many players skipped the Orion first time around to save for something better.

    Heh, I still buy the Orion on most of my playthroughs, it's a cool ship.

    I couldn't run Privateer right away and had to live vicariously through Mark Minasi's Secrets of the WC Universe book. That preconditioned me towards a Centurion with Tachyon Cannons as my first new ship. :)

    Yeah, buying an Orion was hugely exciting. And honestly, the Orion was such a significant boost to your abilities, that buying it always made sense, because it meant you could work towards the Centurion faster, and more comfortably.

    I could never get over having to sell stuff at a loss. I only ever tried different ships on different playthroughs.
