Plasma engines are widely sold throughout the southern and core regions of human space. When compared to ion engines, they are more efficient in terms of thrust per ton, but as a result they also produce more heat and drain a bit more energy.

For players unable or unwilling to purchase atomic engines, plasma engines are generally better if you're looking to play a combat style early on, while ion engines are better for more passive early playstyles like trading.
