Welcome back. Today we would like to present you our 15th dev blog, which was originally due to be released last week but had to be postponed for organizational reasons. We are glad you all returned for this little introduction of one of the key members of the Manticore crew, namely the ship’s head mechanic Saya Nehiro. Those of you playing the softlaunch version of Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore, which is currently available on the App Store in Denmark and the Netherlands, will already have made her acquaintance. After all, she is your very first contact person in the game. Her principal duty is the management of the hangar where you select, upgrade and equip your differing ships. Additionally, she is also the one who informs you about all major changes we apply to the app.
On the commando bridge of the Manticore, Saya keeps you in the loop regarding all things happening in the hangar.
Before she took on the gig at the Manticore, Saya’s life was pretty wild and adventurous. After dropping out of school as well as the academy of the Terran Navy, the self-taught tech wiz kept her head above the water by doing all kinds of not-so-legal work – much of which she carried out at the behest of a certain Mkkt Bkkt. Growing older, she longed for a little more order in her life. So she headed for the Neox Sector, where no one asks about your past and everyone gets the chance to start anew.
In Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore, you have tons of different weapons and power-ups at your disposal. Saya gladly helps you mount any of them.
With the help of her childhood friend Haley Snocom, she scored a job at Nova Defense Services. But unlike her pal Kyrrk Tast, she does not embark on missions. As head mechanic, she stays on board of the Manticore and looks after the ships stationed there. While the safety and simplicity of her current employment pleases her in many aspects, there are moments in which she lingers after the thrill and adventure of the wild life she left behind.

In Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore, Saya will be your first point of contact for all matters concerning your ships. With the hangar being her private little kingdom, you will meet her whenever you are about to pick a differing vessel, mount a new weapon or install another power-up. And she is also the first to tell you when a blueprint is ready, an upgrade is through or an improvement is due. As soon as things get technical on the Manticore, be assured that Saya is right in the middle of it!
