My idea is that there would be a certain type of transport/industrial ship that will always make you show up in local and overview as a friend. It would also allow you to dock in any station.

The ship should not be able to cloak, nor fit any weapons or cynos. And if the pilot flying it is at war with you, the ships bonuses should be negated and he appear red again.

My intention with this ship is to make it possible for neutral parties to establish trade routes with larger alliances without getting shot on sight. A smuggling operation so to speak. And, while they could still be shot, it would require closer inspection by those guarding the area. I wouldn't expect the average large alliance member to be that observant in reality, but I might be wrong?

What does those more experienced in nullsec life think about this?
Would this make it possible to do trading as a neutral in NBSI space or would it be noticed immediately?
Would it be exploitable?
Would it present an unacceptable amount of spies? (keeping in mind that a cloaked spy, or spy alt easily can get into most space already)
Would it be good (more/cheaper equipment in stations) or bad (compete with own alliance traders) to have in your space?

I have to wonder why you would even suggest this, with so many options available in the game for very safe travel.

You should now put on your flame retardant suit.

You can establish a trade route in null sec without getting shot. Just get a transport ship and fit it with a cloak. You can warp to zero cloaked and then continue on. It would be nice if they came out with a transport ship that had its own jump drive. If they did that then the cloak should not be allowed to be fitted and as it is a not a combat ship it should be able to jump to any spot on the map (with in its range) regardless of sec level.
