We won’t really know the needs until after launch. First because of the game mechanics and second knowing how many people will be playing, staying in the org and how active each person is.
I think the main problem we are going to have is enough personnel. We have many people with multi-crew ships but not enough people to crew them. It seems like a lot of people signed up for the Corp but how many of them are actually committed to the corp? Judging by the forum traffic it doesn’t seem to be enough.
Yeah I agree, I think I’m just gonna go for a cutless right now and just keep it as my personal ship. Hopefully we gain some more active members.

Most people back the game, forget about it, and then come back when its done. I suspect that the closer we get to Beta and even release, the more our population is going to explode. If I was you, I wouldn’t worry TOO much about compositions just yet.
Fully agree with AllergicToBullets, usually the activity increases once Cloud Imperium finishes an other build. If I were you I would just pick a ship you like and feel comfortable with. Plus you can add NPC to your crew if you come short. Although NPC might be worse than actual players, I am fairly certain players won’t just sit in a turret all day. I am still quite surprised Cloud Imperium thinks players will have the patience for stuff like that. Therefore, I think most ships will eventually need a lot less active players than stated in the brochures.
If you are in a hurry to get a ship. I would suggest waiting for the hangar sale on a Hull A-E, Prospector, Orion or just get a starfarer. Something that can make you money. More than anything I am sure we are guaranteed to need raw resources and capital no matter who joins us or how the gameplay turns out.
Is there a listing of number of each ship type there is in this org? Is there really only 2 javs in this org with 3k members? Going by that fleet overview pic. Just curious what all is in this org, whats being needed.
There was a ship list at some point, but we are waiting until SC gets further along in production to start really planning anything.
And there are only 2 Javelins that we know of in addition to many of our members using SRN as a secondary (even tertiary) organization. Our core will be much smaller IMO, especially counting against TEST and Xplor.
If you want to contribute to, for the most part just hop on Discord and game with some of the other members. Start building those friendly connections and just have a good time =D
