If we have PvP battle on a 10 v 10 or above scale and even the current PvE missions, we can use ships that has very minimal offense and very powerful support power. The ship linked above can be some sort of repair ship that can help other player's ship in the middle of combat. Even bringing in the 'call for help' button when you die in space and wait for one of this ship to come to your rescue.
These ships can have deploying turrets abilities that doesn't use consumables.
Even an added perk as a player, those who are flying the ship will grant extra inventor slot that is attached to this kind of ship!
