Farragut under repair

I saw something interesting for the first time while playing this game (apart from combat, of course) (and apart from pulsars, binaries, and trinaries). On 2017 February 5, I saw a Farragut battle cruiser under repair outside the front of Evans Port in the Parutis system. Every now and again, I could see blue flashes from the welding. There was a Federal Corvette patrolling nearby. I wish that I could own and pilot a Farragut!

What could have caused hull damage to a mighty Farragut?

There are some more of these repair stations for capitols around there :)
You can see some imperial ones in Cubeo at the agriculture station there (don't remember the name right now)

What can cause such damage? Another battlecruiser!
It happened already two times to me, that i found a batllecruiser from the federation and another one from pirates in a fight when dropping into distress signal source thread 4.
This is one hell of a battle and happens very rarely but is really great [up]
 
Rhea has also two damaged Farragut BC's. Although the lighting is no where near as good as this :D





I wish we can wander around after 3.0 on those mighty ships...maybe get some very special Missions...
 
I dunno, but the Imperial ships I saw have what looks like 'claw' damage.

Video (skip to about 2:30 for 'claw' marks):

Nice pictures.
I hope to run into something like that myself.
Has not happened yet.

It is great to have this in the ED galaxy.
I would love to be able to dock with such an installation and get missions.
 
thx for this thread so I could go to these locations...

how long have they been there? and has there been any difference to these ships since the 1st time they appeared there?

when i did a tour last week, i couldn't find at least 1 of the cap ship docks ... so it looks as if they are changing over time. also i had a double imperial capital ship dock with just 1 cap ship docked. i assume that the unique cap ships not in use during a week show up in that docks ... but that is an untested assumption.
 
Why can't we have these more involved in the CZ's? After 2 years its still the same Turkey Shoot... we could have strategic points, carriers, cap ships, derelicts, structures to fight over etc... instead we get the same old nothing.

Nice find. As goemon has already mentioned ..

.. I'm cataloguing all these in that other thread. I've added a link for your thread to the existing Parutis info and taken the liberty of pinching one of your screenshots too.
