Per request below, we're keeping track of our journeys now! May try to track other important ships too as they come up.

First of all, here's what would have happened if we hadn't disabled the Rasputin:

No medal, but we still could have gone on with no real effect.

Here's our brand new ship, the Valkyrie.

This isn't really a very good mission to drop this ship onto a new player, because it's pretty much a face-to-face battle, and that's not the Valk's specialty.
