    I had been trying something earlier with mounting a plasma web rather than a regular gun, but I do not like meddling in things I do not understand.

    So, great. That design definitely works with some firepower to spare. Gauss isn't very efficient against the shield system so just use non-heavy disruptors and you can probably have the cheapest ship as well as the smallest.

    For posterity's sake (apparently this thread comes up on google) we should also post some screenies of the emg ship designs...

    Here is the Hunter. 9 of these should do the trick (8 is possible with some luck).
    Also need Tachyon Scanner at the minimum, tho Neutron Scanner is a more safe bet (+900 RP).
    Ion Drive is not needed really.

    Turn 96 here was from Average tech start, with 8! turns travel time ploughing trough a nebula.

    Sry I made a mistake, I used a destroyer. Frigate with no advanced techs couldn't hold much.

    Anyway the main issue for me isn't usually killing orion, it's finding him in my large and huge galaxies.

    Even when you kill him the weapon tech is mostly worthless because it doesn't miniaturize. Unless you want a huge doom star to take out flux shielded planets and death rays, it's not very good at fighting ships. Miniaturized shield piercing phasors are a lot better, or disruptors.

    In terms of research the cheapest build would be to use gyro destabilizer which is only at total of 900 research Points to get.

    Gyro Destabilizer never miss and do damage directly to structure with damage being multiplied with ship size which make overall an effective low Tech weapon against the Guardian.

    Simply build the cheapest smallest ship you can equip with Gyro Destabilizer, a destroyer with battlepods should be able to equip one.

    You'll gonna need a LOT of destroyers to be able to pull this off. I am guessing around 60 of them. Also you gonna need a good combat speed, or half of the fleet will be out of range for most of the time.
