Expedition Frigates are Tech II mining frigates specialized in activities other than basic ore mining.

Prospect

The Prospect is a Tech II variety of the Venture, and sports the ability to fit a Covert Ops Cloaking Device. It has an increased cargo and ore hold, even more bonuses to mining yield, more tank, and 3 additional low slots, but no drone bay and no innate warp stabilization.

The Prospect is designed to operate in dangerous or hostile space. A Covert Ops Cloaking Device will allow it to warp while cloaked, making it very difficult to catch. However, it lacks even the rudimentary defense of a small drone bay that the Venture has, so if caught, it is completely helpless. It can't even handle any belt rats that might spawn without refitting.

The Prospect retains the Venture's bonus to Gas Cloud Mining, and due to its higher ore hold, is the best ship in the game for collecting gas.

After the runaway success of the Venture mining frigate, ORE spun their growing frontier exploration and exploitation division, Outer Ring Prospecting, into a new subsidiary. The corporation’s first project was the development of a new line of Expedition frigates, designed to meet the needs of the riskiest and most lucrative harvesting operations.

The Prospect combines improved asteroid mining systems with the Venture frame whose speed and agility made its predecessor famous. It is also the first ORE ship to take advantage of Covert Ops Cloaking Devices, allowing the Prospect to warp while cloaked for movement to and from asteroid fields in even the most hostile territories.

Endurance

The Endurance is a Tech II variety of the Venture, and has bonuses to Cloaking Devices. It has an increased cargo and ore hold, even more bonuses to mining amd ice harvesting yield, more tank, and 2 additional low slots, but no innate warp stabilization.

The Endurance is designed to operate in dangerous or hostile space.

After the runaway success of the Venture mining frigate, ORE spun their growing frontier exploration and exploitation division, Outer Ring Prospecting, into a new subsidiary. The corporation’s first project was the development of a new line of Expedition frigates, designed to meet the needs of the riskiest and most lucrative harvesting operations.

The Endurance is being released under ORE’s ‘Frostline’ branding and combines improved ice mining systems with the well-proven mining frigate frame that served so well as the basis of the Venture and Prospect classes. Unique subsystems and fittings, coupled with a new compact ice mining laser design, give the Endurance the unique ability to harvest ice from a frigate class hull. In addition to this, the creators of the Endurance managed to retain much of the stealth technology that Expedition frigates have become known for.
