In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Transcendence, the Osaka-class transport from Frontier 0.5 has been released as a free registered extension!
The Osaka was originally designed as a troop transport by the Nakura Corporation in the Frontier. The design proved to be versatile and robust, and has been used in many roles ranging from a missile ship to a freighter to a heavy gunship.

While the Osaka class doesn't have as much space for upgrades as the Sapphire or Wolfen, it carries more cargo than either. Its powerful engines allow it to move as nimbly as a sapphire, even when loaded with cargo and heavy armor. It can also carry one more weapon than the EI500 can, giving it an additional edge in combat.

The stock hull comes equipped with class-II shields and the Nakura bolter, a unique recoilless cannon design firing armor-piercing rounds.
You can acquire your new ship here!

Wolfy has kindly provided some links for steam users to download the extension from. I've put these on the steam forums for now. (Hopefully this doesn't get wolfy's dropbox shut down from high traffic).

Whats frontier 0.5? And why not replace E1500 with Osaka? We also need more armor piercing weapons! Thanks!

Frontier 0.5 was Transcendence's predecessor, made in 1995. I can't find a working download link anymore, it seems to have disappeared along with other stuff when Transcendence's link changed to the multiverse. The only ship you could pilot in it was the Osaka.
The Osaka is not a freighter like the EI500, so it doesn't fit the same role.

Whats the need of the freighter anyway? More cargo space? Osaka has that too. And it can support 2 weapons. And more devices than the sapphire. And osaka is faster too!

There is no such thing as "need" All ships require different playstyles. With the freighter you can trade more and therefore you can make more credits early on. Your playstyle in it has to be more defensive because it is slow and cannot install an array of weapons. It can install much heavier armor then all other ships so it can tank more damage.
The Osaka does not have as much cargospace as the EI500 and cannot use heavy armor. It has to be fast in order to stay alive. The playstyle in the osaka can be more agressive, but not as much as when you play with the Wolfen. You can trade with it, but you will need a cargohold expansion to do that.
Different ships = different playstyles.
