Detention Centre The Shield of Resolve

The Shield of Resolve, a Detention Centre

A Detention Centre is a type of Flight Operations Carrier Megaship where criminals are detained.

Independent pilots who commit crimes can be apprehended by Security Forces. When criminal warrants are detected on a ship before its destruction, then it's transferred to the nearest appropriate Detention Centre. There they are processed for their crimes, forced to pay off their accumulated fines and bounties of the jurisdiction where they were destroyed or accept bankruptcy before being released. There are Superpower Detention Centres for Commanders with interstellar bounties.[1][2]

Notes Edit

  • Ships that are destroyed unrelated to a crime will respawn at the nearest and safest Starport in the system if possible or revert to the last port docked.[2]
  • If you are at a Detention Centre, you are in a solo, private space until you engage your Frameshift Drive. This is so that other people can't wait around and gank you.[1]
  • When a ship is wanted (hot) and when you store it, then you can't transfer it to a system where it's wanted. Any modules that are in the ship are also hot. So if you take them out then you can't put them into other ships that aren't wanted. If you put any clean modules into a wanted ship then they become hot. This prevents loopholes to clean or launder a wanted ship.[1]
  • Detention Centres do not go into Lockdown, so CMDRs wanting to use a Detention Centre as their home station will not have trouble with them.
  • When respawning at a Detention Center the player must pay off their fines and bounties of the previous jurisdiction including rebuy costs if the ship was destroyed. All other bounties and fines remain attached to the ship. If you don't pay then you will be forced to choose the Sidewinder, and lose the old ship and its loadout.
