The Goldfish
You need a construction tool for space stations? You need a Grabber for rescuing Kerbals or attaching to other spacecraft? You need a tiny Lander for low grav environments? And above all, you need a small relay satellite?
Go and buy yourself a KinderĂ¼berraschung! Or take the Goldfish.

The Goldfish comes equipped with a drone core, a grabbing unit, has relay antennas included.
The monopropellant tanks feed the RCS Thrusters as well as the Engines.
It can be piloted by a Kerbal from the command chair or remotely by a drone core.
It has *** m/s delta V in vacuum.

Did we mention it’s possible use as a rescue craft? You can save a Kerbal from being stranded in space and bring him savely down to Kerbin! The grabbing unit substitutes as landing gear wit it’s high stress tolerance, the shielded docking port and the service bay protect a Kerbal during reentry. The parachutes will slow the Goldfish enough to survive the landing.

With 3t take off weight, it is reasonably light to be stowed on many crafts.
