Scorpion is the highest-ranking ship outside of Delta. The highest kev in Delta has less than 5K, while Pete has a Galaxy with almost 70. Merlin’s kev demonstrates that gold can be earned and kept in a kev, but how often do you think Scorpion has been outside of scan range from a sb? I would suspect for antimatter refills and little else. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t even get xtals in that thing unless the quadrant is empty and no other players are online.
