Just thought I'd consolidate the information that Dan has leaked about the Neutral Pilots stretch goal. This is another set of alien pilots that will be added to the deck. They do not have their own dedicated color of freighter but can serve as a pilot of any of the other colors. They get to take any freighter color they wish (assuming you don't already have one of that color) from the Cantina when chosen.

Here are the powers leaked so far:

Specialist: Whenever a player uses the specialist, he may take the docking bay action twice this turn.

Mercenary: Whenever a player uses the mercenary, he may bribe the dock master for free this turn. This does not count against the limit of once per foundry.

Pirate: Whenever a player uses the pirate, he may choose one of his freighters and then move any number of items to it from his other freighters.

Miner: Whenever a player uses the miner, he may take one ore from the supply and place it in his warehouse or on one of his freighters.

Scavenger: Whenever a player uses the scavenger, they may use the ability of any one alien in their discard pile.

Thief: Whenever a player uses the thief, he may take one credit from the supply.

Here are some of the examples/clarifications that Dan posted as well:

------------------------

The neutral pilot will "command" one freighter in lieu of the normal faction pilot. So at most, you'l still be able to take only 3 alien pilots to Beta.

Pirate:

For example, you have three freighters: an empty four-spaced one, a three-spaced one with two items, and a two-spaced one with two items. You play the pirate and move your four items to the four-spaced freighter.

Specialist:

Similar to the basic Mechanic in that he gives you a free action, but just like the Mechanic, there will be times when it may turn out to be wasted if not used properly. He's not necessarily a freebie, but can be very useful.

Miner:

Sometimes you need to launch and you don't have and skyrite or rubion to make use of the process or traders action. Its also good to fill in any hole in your freighter without having to bring it down from an asteroid and then back up.

In Beta he does get to "mine" out of thin air. Think of thematically as the miner finding ore in smaller, almost unnoticeable asteroids. Either that or he just knows some people who can hook him up.

Updated the Scavenger to reflect Dan tweaking it to use Jerad's suggested power.
