    Let the discussion, debate, and dreaming begin!

    I want my own ship! The "Luna" class would be good enough.

    Capital Ships should have 'crew' capacity of at least 500 people. I seriously doubt that galaxy class starships would be fully playable. However the starships USS Defiant and USS Voyager had crews of 200 or less. I say standard mid-range sized ships should be able to have a group of 30 crewmembers.

    I don't like the idea of not being able to walk around my ship in first person when the game is initially released. What bothers me more is what If I can't access ships systems in first person? What I mean is lets say it is me a 4 other people in a delta-flyer. The other three are in 3rd person computer screen view controlling their system consoles.

    What if I was fixing a busted control console in first person, or something like that. Or the same except I have to run to the mini-lab (that is what I call it) in the flyer and put on an environmental suite. Why, well the ship is about to be crippled (can't destroy ships) and I have to beam down to a hostile environment to a science station. That would be so cool.

    Hey I am all for explorying the galaxy and making new alien friends, but there is always somebody who wants to kick your butt. I'd prefer to have the biggest hard-toed boot possible to kick back!

    I've been nice for far too long. Isolating oneself in an imaginary and computer generated world does not further social ambitions in any way, shape, or form.

    But then you go home and deal with the real world. You don't get online at home and delve in the computer world for another 8 hours....irregardless of how much you may want to. :p

    I am trying to have a fan-based discussion about a game. I'd appreciate if keep your criticism restricted to the topic, thank you.

    This topic falls in line with your postings of how you don't interact well with the real world. Isolating yourself in the computer world is not healthy and serves no purpose for the real world except to take your time and money.

    Johnnyb .... other than an attempt to flame was there any reason for your comments? I'm a gamer (although I prefer single player RPG to multi) and after reading many of your comments on this board I feel safe to say I'm much more grounded in reality than you are so the fact that someone plays games does not necessarily mean they are socially retarded.

    Jonas, sorry I can't contribute I only posted because a comment irked me.
    You probably would have better responses if you posted on the gaming board (although TSG is very thin on active gamers in my opinion)
