Who needs the Origin 100i?

The 100i is designed to offer a stylish alternative to the Mustang Alpha and the Aurora MR starter ships. In terms of speed and toughness it lies between the Mustang Alpha and Aurora MR. Although it is outgunned by the other two starter ships, it makes up for it with its missiles and improved maneuverability.

Who needs the Origin 125a?

The 125a is ideal for aspiring combat pilots. It provides a starting point into the space combat profession without breaking the bank. This ship is suited towards mercenary solo pilots who wish to live and work on the same ship for short periods of time. With its luxurious loadouts this ship makes for a great entry point for casual players.

Who needs the Origin 135c?

If cargo is your calling then look no further than starting your adventure with the 135c. This small, speedy and sleek hauler could even become a necessity for large fleet operations.

The questions and answers on this page are a mix from our own speculation along with what has been said officially by RSI. Below we link the official Q & A pages from the RSI website for your convenience.

Q & A Part I -> https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/engineering/16520-Q-A-Origin-100-Series-Part-I

Is the Origin 100i Overpowered Compared to the Aurora or Mustang?

No. The Origin 100 series of ships is in line with the rest of the Origin Jumpworks brand. As such the ships offer comfort at the expense of excellence in other abilities. If anything, the 100i seems a little underwhelming.

Can the Origin 100 Air Fuel System Remove the Need to Refuel?

The Air Fuel System of the Origin 100 series of ships does not provide unlimited refueling of any fuel type. There are limitations and the ships will need to refuel or be refueled periodically. The system provides a potential range enhancement at the expense of planning, since not all routes will provide refueling options.

Is the 100i good ship at making money?

The 100i will be capable of running a great variety of starting missions but due to limitations of things like cargo or specialized equipment mounts the 100i appears more to be aimed at casual starting players.

Why was the 100i Starter Pack Sold with LTI?

It has been standard for concept sales to offer LTI. Additionally, small ships have been offered with LTI before. It is always good to remember that LTI offers only a small perk for players who directly backed a ship during its concept stage. Concept sales can be seen as form of fresh funding to finance new concepts, whether they be ships, vehicles or other. Read more on Lifetime Insurance (LTI).

Are the 100i and 125a Underpowered?

The 100 series offers advantages in other areas, therefore pilots should be competitive against other starter ships.
