Not sure if it's a bug or not, but i can't find a way to get rid of Sierra ship (Voidwitch/Voidwretch) from Promise quest. I can't store it on any planet, both "Store" and "Scuttle" options are permanently greyed out with "Cannot store/sell last ship" tag.

I'm not gonna try this mod yet till the wobbly bits are ironed. I respect your work too much to spoil it by experiencing it for the first time in an incomplete and probably buggy form. First impression and all that.

That being said, I want you to know that "A Promise" was always one of the highest points of any run, with any faction, so I can't wait to see it improved and expanded. It felt like a vanilla mid-game storyline. A shame it was so short. Which apparently it isn't anymore. I'm eager to follow Omi and Sie into their newest venture. Love her "combat chatter" dialogues too. Please add more snarky AI comments.

I got a question about the A Promise quest

Can Sierra's ship be upgraded to something bigger? It's a good ship for the mid game but in the endgame, when going up against large fleets with lots of capitals, it gets ripped apart really fast

Thanks! As for the question...

This is where the "secrets" part of the name comes in. You'll need to find the next step yourself. You'll get a hint if you happen to fly by the right place, so keep your eyes peeled and ears open.

Tia'Taxet. If you're in Random Sector (sorry, didn't think about that), you'll find the Athena somewhere in the core worlds.

Love this mod, we need more narrative content in starsector

Finished the 3 quests, here's some feedback.
 
Spoiler
Found Tia'Taxet, it had a black hole and 2 stars. Think one of my 15+ mods messed with it since I'm not using random sectors. Sierra got a skill upgrade, very nice.
Then the ??? sector spawned, Had to run around the sector for a while till I used my scanner. ended up with Sierra in a Vow ship and got a Wispmother BP.

If sierra had the option to jump into the wispmother, it never came up.
Also I was using the upgraded scanner from seeker unknown contact in ???. Would suggest giving a hint to use the vanilla scanner just in case.

The Vow is cure but it's no Radiant. Poor Sierra had a run in with some hive ships so now were putting Humpty Dumpty back together.
[close]

While I like the secret quest idea, I would suggest making a spoiler section with a detailed walkthrow of the quests and rewards so we can easily test them and give you feedback.
It's a pain to test 3 quests much less when you add more the future.

The quality of this mod has convinced me to try the Arsenal Expansion one - I know you said it's been abandoned but will there be any conflicts if I have both this and that one installed at the same time?

Arsenal Expansion features a primitive version of the A Promise quest, which can be disabled from a settings file in AE's folder to avoid conflicts with the one in this mod.

Space stations are a nice stopgap between nothing and full fledged colonies. I wish the base game also did something like that.
The battle objectives are, in my opinion, the best part about this mod, mainly because they make passable and boring part of combat into meaningful and fun one! You can't really ignore objectives when they are shooting gauss slugs at you.

interested in this mod, could you give an example of what you mean here?
