There is certainly a space trucker aspect to it but you can also be solely combat focused. Fights can be found right from the outset at Nav Beacons, Resource Extraction Sites, Combat Zones or through piracy and interdictions. A lot of the community goals are also combat orientated, a lot of the materials required for mods drop from destroyed ships, lots of missions are combat focused, so on and so forth.I found joining a player group helps to keep the interest and motivation going.
