Why not just use the modules on an unarmed ship, saving yourself the cost of weaponry?

Guns don't kill owls, owls kill owls

But you'd be putting the vessel at risk at being attacked. Why spend extra resources on an escort when you can just put the module needed on a cruiser and have it fend for itself?

So we take a science module, and put it inside a dreadnought?

No.

For that you'd want maybe 8 science modules with all the extra space.

My point is there's no reason to go and build a whole nother spaceship when you could just put it on your heavily armed and armoured warship.

You should change the title to Noncombat ships, or something along that lines, because this thread has turned into a talk place about them. Also, if space hulks are added, we will need some kind of salvage ship to well, salvage them.

The salvage module of my dreadnought, you mean?

I don't get everyone's fixation of weaponry. It's not always going to by required, in fact it'll just raise your production costs by a fair amount.

Unless your entire civilization is military-based, there's no reason to arm everything with 2 tin cans and a thruster.

I'm a huge fan of blowing *stuff* up. But what guns are expensive. People that are just starting out might not have the money to produce weaponry. Maybe there are a few Cores that can't support guns but have cost, speed and maneuverability to balance it out?
