Welcome to Nomad Fleet my friends! This mix of FTL-like sector jumping with Homeworld-style 3D space combat and resource gathering just came out of early access a couple of weeks ago, so I’m diving in. In this first entry, I trade for some research opportunities, then run into a couple of sectors full of pirates. I dispatch the pirates with some decent losses to my own fleet, but sadly not in time to save a friendly convoy. In true scavenger/nomad style, however, I did pick the bones from the flesh of the dead and…acquire their recently lost resources to my own great benefit. Now, onto the next sector!
