But in a game like this, where there are so many variations on ships, stats and weapon loadout, most people develop their own list of 'best ships and stuff'. You will too. :)

I completely agree with you :)

In my opinion the best M3+ is the Medusa, for it's PSG's and laser recharge, whilst the Mamba Vanguard gets my vote for standard M3 due to it's high recharge and PBE's. Also it gets better shielding than the raider.

Thanks, I got one buzzing right in front of my noze right now! Let's see if he's bail-frendly :)

Which BBS missions are you talking about?

Ships spawned by Xenon Invasion missions aren't cappable (although I've never bothered to check the morale they spawn with).

Ships spawned by Xenon Taxi missions appear to have a fixed morale of 25, and are all capabble.

Argon Prime, iirc.

The Argon Shipyard in Argon Prime sells it I believe :)

For the Vanilla game I liked the Nova Vanguard (obviously Nova raider as well).

For XTM, which is what I mostly play, I love the Kea. Its stats are slightly worse than an LX but it can mount alpha Kyons which are great for capping ships as you can' instantly stop doing damage.

I like the Nova but there was a Super Nova in X2. I think you had to do a mission and it was an escort with super speed but when trying to capture it, you had to make sure you did not knock down the engine tuning on it.

Holy Necro Batman! Best M3 for what I assume is X3R is the Xenon LX.
