I truly hope there will be no shipyard as it will open up new possibilities with certain individuals..
The Station at WP 2 will have Outfitting available, where mining-gear can be bought or transferred to, so nobody needs to drag the gear with them.
"Weekend beginning 18th Jan, arrive at;
★ Omega Mining Operation (Asteroid Base) - GalMap Ref: Omega Sector VE-Q b5-15
Commanders taking part in the Mining-CG need to deliver their mined materials to the Omega
Mining Operation Asteroid Base (make sure you are signed up to the CG before making deliveries!)."
Colour me confused
The point being, Mining Stations tend to be for extraction and/or refining. They are backwater systems, often on the frontier with little in the way of services, or comfort. Often the things they'd have, would be stockpiled ahead of time or imported via supply ships.
From a RP standpoint I think this is different. Omega officials knew months before that a grand fleet is going to come and stay in their system for more than a week, undertaking a huge mining operation. Would make a lot of sense to stock up on everything, including mining gear, before that. Lots of credits to be made for such a small system. Imagine the bad press if the fleet turns up and finds a depleted base with not much to buy, requiring parts of the fleet to turn around and run back to where it started. Not good.
