You guys all rock! This is the friendliest forum I've ever used! Last question from me, then I'll stop bugging you (for a while!). When I first got the game, I fiddled with some of the mission settings, like the "minimum rank required", because I wanted to play them all straight away (I know, I was ...

How about? ?Missile upgrades? ? similar to promotions ? when you reach a certain rank or a certain number of kills it unlocks a faster/more powerful/quicker turning missile. Making asteroids able to be destroyed by missile hits. Number of hits needed could be based on the size of the asteroid. Not b...

While we're doing newbie questions... I assume that missiles have a "stealth factor" of zero, so if you're flying a really stealthy ship does that mean that you become visible the first time you launch? Also, do you get anything for causing an enemy to eject? (Apart from the fact that there's one le...

* Killing enemies is good. The more things you kill the better, turrets and civilians are 'worth' a less than you might think. Concentrate on enemy fighters. * The ratio of worth_of_ships_killed_by_you vs the_cost_of_your_ship affects the medals you get. Thus if you are flying a very expesnive ship...

This link doesn't seem to be working, so pardon me for being thick but could someone please tell me why anyone would ever want to kill a commander?

Asteroids should only appear on radar when you discover them, not straight from the start.

It would be good if you could control the lead ship in another friendly squadron in a big war mission - alternating turns between your commander and the other ship. The other commander would have to be "unsaveable" and disappear after the mission otherwise... ...I was going to say, otherwise you'd h...

Once a missile has accelerated to its max speed, will it do the same damage if it hits after it has run out of fuel?

Very cool! You scored as Enterprise D (Star Trek). You have high ideals and know in your heart that humanity will continue to evolve in a better people. No matter what may happen, you have faith in human beings. A rare quality. Now if only the Borg would quit assimilating people. Enterprise D (Star ...

I can see both sides to this one, but when it comes down to it, I'd prefer not to be able to resurrect dead commanders. The point of the game is to play it as best you can - if you play well, you advance, if you **** up, you die. This is life! If you were guaranteed to live forever then where would ...

...surely resurrecting dead commanders is kinda spoiling the point of the game?...
