What's wrong with Ship 2

Cannot connect to server. Quit in the middle of an Ultimate Quest

I had this problem, too. I had joined a UQ, and soon after, other players weren't moving, and I couldn't damage anything. Logged completely out of the game, tried to get back on, but now Ship 2 says it's down for maintenance. wtf?

Nothing about it on Twitter, so pull up your coziest chair and wait like the rest of us

IMO: Free character transfers to ships that aren't always on fire. Ship 2 seems to have the worst issues.
