Overview

With your introductory back into the principles of basic combat out of the way, the second mission in the Advanced Military career arc will introduce you to an important and inevitable experience in Eve Online, losing your ship. For this purpose, you will be granted a frigate with which you are to take into the mission encounter and fly it into an enemy space station, destroying the station and your ship intentionally.

Before you undock for this mission, a few tips to keep in mind. You need to fly the ship your agent gave you for this mission, however it does not need to be the exact copy. For example, you are granted a Condor in the Caldari version, however you can fly any Condor you have in your possession as there is nothing special about the hull given to you. Also, since you are guaranteed to have your ship destroyed, you should make sure to get Platinum Insurance which grants the biggest Isk payout in the event of the loss of your ship and make absolutely sure you have no modules fitted or items in your cargo.

Once you are set, fly out to the mission encounter and through the acceleration gate that takes you to the target room. Inside you will find a Starbase Control Tower guarded by a trio of enemy ships. Select the station and hit approach, ignoring the enemy ships. Once you get close to the base, about 1km or so, it will trigger the destruction of your ship, along with the Starbase which subsequently destroys the pirate ships in the blast. You will also get the insurance payout immediately deposited into your wallet.

On Ship Loss, Pods and Clones
The lesson here is that losing your ship, does not mean the end for you, as you will eject out of your ship in what is known as a pod or capsule. These are essentially a small craft that houses your body, sitting within the ship you are currently piloting. When said ship is destroyed, you are always ejected into your pod. Since your Pod has warp travel with an almost instant align time, you still can move around quite well, although your regular engines are slow and should not be relied on to escape danger.

You will never have to worry about losing your pod to the AI, which will be covered more later, but you pod can and often will be destroyed by other players if they have the opportunity, particularly in a situation where they are free of Concord reprisal. Thus it is always important to spend as little time as possible just floating through space as a pod, making sure to rely heavily on your warp drives. Finally, if your pod is destroyed, you will be "reborn" into a new clone of yourself, wherever your current medical clone is stationed, losing any implants equipped and potentially skill points if you do not have an adequate clone to save all the SP you have accrued at the point of your death.
