While the higher quality graphics used by Direct X 10 / Direct X 11would be a nice addition the hardware limitations of the majority would make it economically questionable to invest time to develop these assets.
I love this game and the system i play on is 3 years old with a slightly younger graphics card so i manage but I as with a lot of people don't have the money to fork out for higher end equipment at the moment.
Some planetary scenary I have seen in this MMO have blown me away, especially when you compare it to games like Star Wars Galaxies, Anarchy Online and Earth and Beyond, but the space graphics could use some work i agree.
If you give the devs time they may invest more in these technologies after they are well established and the general user base obtains the equipment but for now I think they are far better investing their time into more playability than aesthetics.
