E-2 Asteroid Miner

While the Byblos Drive Yards E-2 asteroid-mining ships appear at first to be
small insectoid ships, the mining vessels are actually over one hundred
meters long. E-2 mining ships, found throughout the galaxy, offer a simple
and cheap alternative to using tractor beams to move asteroids. They have
rugged claws with which to dig through solid rock and attach to an asteroid.
Once they are locked in place, their thruster jets are fired to move the
trapped asteroid to a specific location. An E-2 miner has plasma drills to
cut through useless rock, while a central suction tube draws material up
into the E-2's filtration system: valuable ores are stored in the cargo bays,
while waste material is used as fuel for the E-2's thrusters. Each mining
ship normally has a command crew of four, a bridge crew of ten, and over a
hundred asteroid miners.
