Now, does anyone know how to pause the hints that appear at the bottom of the screen while changing locations, for example between sectors? The change too quickly (or the sector space loads too quickly) for me to read them.
To my knowledge there is no way... which is sad because there's lots of cool tidbits in there.

Congratulations on pasting those green-blooded hobgoblins.

I play in windowed mode so that I can Alt+Escape between the forums and the game. When in the background, the loading screen typically stops and prompts you "Press Any Key" and during that time the tips are visible. I don't pay them much attention, so they might still cycle through, but the load screen won't go away until you click it. That might help.

Thank you for all your suggestions. Unfortunately, leaving the game in the background pauses the loading, but doesn't pause the cycle through the info.

or use FRAPS to film a cycle, then cut out each tip by exploring the frames.
