Mineral ships, sometimes called ‘Ore Ships’ are designed to locate sources of ore, mine or extract the ore, and refine or process it into usable metals or material.
In addition to traditional minerals like iron, cobalt, aluminum, gold, platinum, copper etc. Some Mineral ships are designed to locate and extract Tylium and to refine the Tylium ore into usable Solium fuel.
Mineral ships are designed to gather in asteroids and space debris as well as being able to land on planet surfaces.
The Fugitive Fleet has a number of Ore ships, only two are specialized in Tylium refining, the rest are more generalized.
