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.

Base Time to Warp
Base Time to Warp is essentially the time needed for this ship to align and accelerate until it reaches 75% of its top speed and goes to warp. The time displayed here is the base calculated time with no account for any warp related skills, modules or any other effects.

For the role of Blockade Runner these extra skills are recommended:
Expedition Frigates IV
Hull Upgrades IV
Shield Upgrades IV
Evasive Manouvering IV
Due to the lack of drones or built-in warp core stabilizers of the Venture, and thanks to its enlarged cargo hold, the Prospect is best used with a mobile depot to switch between a mining fit, focused on yield and a travel fit able to move about without issues in hostile areas, as well as deal with any rats that pop up.
Being the cheapest ship which can fit a Covert Cynosural Field Generator, this ship is most commonly used in K-Space for BLOPS drops, cynoing in a fleet of combat-capable cloaky ships such as stealth bombers or T3C's through a black ops battleship's covert jump bridge.
Most would see the Prospect as a Gas Harvester or Ninja Miner but the Prospect can also be used as a Blockade Runner. Its frigate classed hull (agility and speed) in combination with 10000 m3 ore storage (no need for cargoexpanders) makes it a superior choice when it comes to haul compressed ore.
