It would be good if within the game we could discover balls of rock or maybe even life on new planets.
It does make you wonder whether a trial of having multiple 'universes' run via the fleets, so they have their own starfleet, starbases and everything included. If you have entered a 'good' fleet this would make the game more community inspired as you would be helping each other.
I always thought using asteroinds form teh Belt would be a relatively easy way to take out a city or country and call it an "Act of God" when your enemies are suddenly smited from space. Probably a good idea if I don't go into politics
