Correct on the Ekop’s ability, she can completely ignore icebergs as if they weren’t there. Her’s is an ability I originally thought would be more expensive, but after some discussion I’ve realized it’s not as handy as I had thought, I’d just never gotten around to adjusting the cost. I’ll switch the costs around for the two ships.
Incidentally, many of the names are either direct copies or are scrambled up is some way. Ekop for instance is the matoran Kopeke, who eventually became chronicler after Takua and Hali.
