    I bought it. After the fleet faction stuff I easily had the credits. I bought it, added some shielded cargo. Upgraded the lasers, upgraded the rail gun, also the missiles. Still has a 30 range. It absolutely destroys enemy ships now. Upgrades cost about 130k credits, so it has a lot more invested into it. Renamed it the Valhalla I.

    I have a ship that I captured really early on although I don’t know if I was supposed to.

    It’s called a Va’ruun Litany and seems not bad. I have captured a few ships now and it’s an honest living.

    The most recent one being a Ecliptic Falcata. It has a very good cargo hold and reasonable guns including automatic turrets.

    I’m flying that about space now.

    Meh unless it’s ng+ just get the Kepler R for free and modify it a bit to be just as good or better than the Narwhal for a fraction of the price.
