Looking for something to do? Missions can be profitable ways to kill some time. In general, missions are a set of tasks that must be accomplished to gain a reward. Sometimes they can take quite a bit of effort and/or money. Usually, missions that require more effort have better rewards.
Missions can be divided in to four categories based on what is required to get the reward.
Sometimes called "mission chains", Storyline Missions are a series of short or long missions that lead up to an exclusive reward. For example, in Sol there is a mission chain that results in the Warden ship as the final prize. Many of these chains are class-locked and found in the various stations at Lyceum.
Scattered randomly throughout the universe are Merchant Missions. For example, one may require ten units of plus-gear (from Free Market) and another may need ten units of oversized gear (from Gargan). The reward is the cost of the purchase plus between 5% and 50% of the amount added on and one of the Trader's marks. The danger factor of the system is tied to the size of the investment and the reward for completion.
Randomly distributed throughout the universe are Base-Supply Missions. The managers of these poor bases are in desperate need of heavy equipment, such as Adonis Radars or Ambrosia Protectors. Many are willing to pay well with credits or rare commodity extractors.
A few special systems have Exchange Missions. These missions permit the exchange of one item (or set of items) for another and are repeatable. The Enforcer Rank missions in Sol are a classic example. Gargan is another system with a large number of these missions.
The mission system was used for these exchanges due to a limitation in how the game was programmed.
