It also wouldn't "interfere" with sensors or anything similar as we regularly with our current technology observe things through and past Nebulae.

Small coulds of dust like those claiming the title of Nebulae in this game would be quickly sucked into the gravity well of the nearest large asteroid or planet and .... yeah ... I better stop now.
Correction: SOME Nebula are that big. Nebulas vary in size a lot.

Hehe.... most Nebulas in Star Trek don't do that either. :p It's unusual for a Nebula to interfere with sensors.

I can haz joystick!
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
