Good lord! This thread should come with a warning label. I choked so hard on my drink I thought I was having an aneurysm or something. I'm crying over here.

You drop the satellite into a square and it'll augment your sensor power. There's no such thing as "remove-viewing", so you need to be in the same system/city.

Thank you Lord Bianchi.

Someone likewise mentioned using sats to get full sensor coverage over terrain. How does that work? Can anyone drop a sat anywhere or do you need to own the planet same as with building?

A sat is just a ship - so just drop it and it provides sensor augmentation/sharing.

Thanks. I'd be curious to hear a description of what dropping one is like. Obviously, you need a ship large enough to fit it. Just pull over and unboard it?

Likewise, what stops people from stealing them?

the same as for every ship. if they are not owner, nor commander of the satellite. they can not tractor the satellite into their ship.
as ellias aubec told: sat's are ships, no items.

As Blot said, its just another ship basically. Just one that you cannot enter. So you have to use the motherships Unboard ability to offload it, and use tractor beams to load them onboard.

What sort of ship would be used to move a satellite?

Something with a tractor beam and a docking bay.
