There's something you may want to be aware of. The faction system may not be very easy to deal with. For the moment, once you get bad rep with a faction, it seems to snowball until they are fully hostile and want to kill you right NOW!
That's not so bad, except it appears to be extremely difficult to correct the situation and it will pose grave problems if you want to visit space controlled by factions hostile to you. It may also pose problems for groups if one or more group members manage to get in this situation. As it stands, and without adjustment, you can get trapped and the only way I know of to clear that is to delete your save, thereby losing any progress you have made.
If this changes, I'll drop back by. Could get adjusted with the next patch. If this is intended? Oh, brother! Absolute fail!
Update: Bug appears squashed at launch, Will update if the situation changes.
Edit number 2: I need to point out that I made an error! It's not a fail at all! It's just some very hard edges for you to bump into! This mofo appears to meant to challenge like nothing you have ever encountered before! I had to think about it very carefully and go back and study the manual. If you want an unusual challenge, you may like this one. if you are just wanting a space pew pew, this one will probably just kick you in the teeth. Get your A-Game on if you want to play!

Judge it by normal MMO rules and you will be mistaken. That was my mistake. You have my apologies. This one is thought out way way outside the box! I'm wondering if it may end up constituting a new genre, or is simply the first "correct" interpretation of what a space sim SHOULD be.
Man, I am a little slow on the uptake sometimes. But at least I try to make it right.
