Orca(for cruisers) or a freighter(up to BS) can do this.

In Orca you have space for one Noctis and one cruiser.
Freighters have more space but you need to use courier contracts. Can be a bit difficult if you want to do it alone and have only one account but it can be done.

Just to explain how this would be done.

Create a courier contract containing your ships to an alt ( in your case a same account alt )
Log onto the alt and accept the contract, then put the package into another courier contract back to your main.
Log onto main. Courier package can now be put into the hold of a freighter.

This involves swapping between your main and a same account alt a few times.
Of course having a same account alt that can pilot a freighter makes it even easier.

Dude, your face?




It's my first time seeing you, sorry.

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.

Or, Don't rig your Noctis repackage it and carry it in one of the two cargo hangars, then drop your fitted BC and up to two additional cruisers in the ship maintenance bay.

Things that keep me up at night;  Why do we use a voice communication device to send telegraphs? Moore's Law should state, Once you have paid off the last PC upgrade you will need another.

Like already mentioned can a freighter do this, but here is an alternative if you do not change systems or stations too many times:

Use RedFrog or Push Industries to have your Noctis delivered. Just fly with your BS to where you want to be and the freight corps will deliver your ship within 1-2 days to you. You will not be able to salvage your missions on the first or second day, but it is the most carefree method all round. The rewards and bounties of one good mission will already pay for the delivery. You will not need to train for a freighter nor have to buy one of them.

Loss is meaningful. Therefore is the loss of meaning likewise meaningful. It is the source of all trolling.

Fly the BS and sell the salvager where it sits.
Most mission hubs will have dozens of replacement salvage ships.
The time saved will make up the rig costs, or contract costs, etc.

Someone already mentioned the easy way: train up your mission runner to fly Orca; stow your mission boat in the Ship Maint bay, and repackage your Noctis each time you move. Rigs really aren't of much use on that ship, so you obviously won't bother with those. Refitting the Noctis takes a whole 30 seconds, so it's not a time waster that courier contracts and jumping between alts would be.

And in the long run: train up for a Marauder*.

Mission boat and salvager all in one, cuts down drastically on your travel times.


*assuming their role isn't wildly changed by tiericide.

Pro Synergy might be an option.

So who will pilot the Orca while you are out in the BS/Noctis?

I trained a few levels into Salvage Drones and sold my Noctis. I don't miss it at all and as long as I remember to only bring as many missiles as I need and not a full cargo bay of them, space for looting is rarely an issue.

salvage drones is a good option.
