Alpha Ship Spotlight – Astero


This Ship Spotlight will focus on a second hull from the Servant Sisters of EVE – the Astero class frigate.

Particularly adept at venturing into dangerous territories for the purposes of astrometry and recovering valuable salvage, the Astero is packed with highly advanced and heavily bonused sensor systems that make it perfect for scouting and surveying.

While Alpha pilots will not benefit from the Covert Ops bonuses of the Astero, this adaptable little frigate packs fantastic versatility and great durability with bonuses based around increasing drone and armor durability.
