I hear a lot about it, "Dark Drive," what is it and how do I get it?

There's a level 1 Dark Drive at the ??? exotic shop (available every game; no RNG on exotic shops). EDIT: Looks like the contraband dealer bug is still in, so you can't actually see it to buy it.

They don't spawn on randomly generated ships. Luckily, the Lortalus always has a Dark Drive equipped and can be found via a G.H. bounty mission.

They might be on certain planets, but I can't confirm.

No worries, and thanks for checking into it again.

I forgot to post the Dark Drive's stats, so here they are at level 1:

It has the worst program recharge rate at 2 dots per fuel, where all other drives range from 3 to 7 dots per fuel. On the plus side, it's very stealthy since charging the warp drive doesn't add to signature AT ALL.
