EVE: ORE Capital Ship

There's a CCP developer blog up on the topic of the forthcoming ORE Capital Ship. Now, realistically, I haven't a chance of running one of those anytime soon. I suspect that from my current skill set to the skills necessary to pilot one of those is probably on the order of a year's development. And my new corporation - SierraTangoCorp [SITAC] - isn't anywhere near big enough to support that kind of mining effort. That doesn't stop me from wanting one, though...

I suppose I could work up toward an Obelisk. There are some fairly lucrative contracts to be got, hauling POS components and other big stuff down to 0.0 space, and if the contracting corp are willing to fly escort, it wouldn't even be that dangerous in these days of warp-to-zero. And from there to the ORE Capital wouldn't be such a big step.

However, given that my current ship emphasis - I have an Indy for what hauling I need - is on drones, a smarter direction to aim would be a Nyx - except, of course, it's nowhere near the ORE ship, skills-wise. On the other hand, it looks like a lot of fun. Being able to unleash a swarm of Firbolgs would be excellent.

I'll have to give it some consideration. At the moment, I'm developing manufacturing and research skills anyway, so all of this is going to be a back-burner project.

I hadn't heard about this ORE Capital Ship before now but after reading the dev-blog and the forum threads it sounds like a great addition. Just last week I wondering why there isn't a mining capital ship. It doesn't quite have the mining capability I was hoping for but at least it sounds like it will be a great addition to large to medium sized mining ops.
