    I don't know if this would be breaking the NDA but say you wanted to fly the Galaxy class cruiser, would you be gimped and have to use the Soveriegn when you can or is it still viable to use the Galaxy?

    Want this so bad...my laptop won't run the thing! I've got HALF the video memory I need (256 rather than the 128 I currently have). I've been looking forward to this and Stargate Worlds for years now. Sucks I can't do anything about it for at least another six months.

    I don't think it has a monthly fee, as the game itself costs 80 already. http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/Prod...oduct_id=75981

    I thought it would be really awesome to have the game set up where the captain and bridge officers on a ship were all players, so that multiple players would work togetherand go on missions and handle different parts of the ships systems. Also, would have been cool if they had maid it so thatthe ships all had interiors (a bridge, medbay, engineering, etc.) so that if you disabled an enemy vessel, you could beam aboard their ship and have gun battles in engineering, the bridge, etc, or even try to beam somebody aboard an enemy ship during combat in an attempt to destroy engineering and sabotage them from the inside.

    But when you think about, the potential for griefing and people just generally not doing their jobs and fucking everything up would be an obvious problem with this, so I can see why they went with the "everybody gets to command their own ship" idea.

    Could someone who is playing the beta PM me or add me on Skype: onox37, and let me know what it's like?

    Do you honestly give a shit about the NDA? It's not like I'm going to tell anyone.

    Baw. No one will break NDA to tell me about the game on skype? I don't know if I want to buy the limited edition for the game and get early access along with two buddy passes.

    You can make it go super fast by going full impulse, full speed and turning on evasive manoeuvres.
