Explorer rank went from Trailblazer to Pathfinder
The way First Discoveries are given/listed was not conducive to counting. In my estimation it was more than 100, possibly more than 200, but I wouldn't think much more than that.
Not sure what I'm going to do now. I'd like to try a Python or some other ships but I'll be damned if I feel like grinding for the cash to buy them. I think I may take a break from the game for a while.
You, sir, need a Clipper! $23m, not too bad. Great ship for trading and can also tear stuff up. It also has the best interior and viewport in the game (haven't flown an Orca yet, though). I totally miss mine, and I'll buy it back eventually.
If you don't have the empire rank, it's really simple to get. And the missions range from simple fetch quests to a few assassination jobs. I wish there were more of that type of stuff in the current game. All the components are there, but there's no story to make you *want* to do any of it if you are say, grinding for your next ship.
