Not far enough in the spire plot yet to tell you much about it, But built my first spirecraft last night. I don't usually like suicide ships, but I really like the martyr ships. Perfect for thinning down a world with a couple of hundred more ships than you want to fight. And four from an asteroid means it doesn't feel like a waste of a really limited resource. My only annoyance with them was i sent one in to clear out a planet, it collected 200 ships. Then I realised about 80 of them were AOE immune frigates! Argh. Ah well, still very useful.
I also think the icon for building the shield carrier spirecraft could do with a little tweaking. Because the ship obscures the red background it looks greyed out. I'll mantis it soon, as a little suggestion.
