Thank you for the details, Dan! So the "Ground" and "Space" entities are more different than I initially thought. I thought our ship was only our avatar with different "skin" and a different set of controls.

I can imagine what our beloved Gozer will have suffered with the cut-scenes of "Stranded .."

I personally like the cut-scenes much more ground than in space. It's much better than simple dialog boxes. In space, for some reason, it bothers me less. Maybe because I'm seeing the outside of the ship and it makes sense to see the dialog boxes in your BOFF's. In ground is weird because you have them at your side.
