No fighting, no risk of fighting, just a nice archaeological survey. Scan an anomaly or a nebula, watch a star going nova, follow a graviton ellipse etc.
Looks like none of this will be possible as I'll be too busy balancing my shields to keep them up from constant attacks
Exactly. its too much about tweaking my weaponry then playing star trek officer. if they keep going down with essentials of star trek kinda sense they loose me. Well yeah, they will keep mmo "kill all" players but this is star trek. Its not about fireing or mining to get money to get better ...well... to get better weaponry. I want story, i want be part of it and i want missions as series episodes. Otherwise its just another game that i have already grown up from.
