    I've been interested in outer space games, but most of them seem to be mmorpg, which is not an issue but i don't want any advanced RPG stuff, i just want to shoot around with battles and explore a bit.


    There's a list here http://www.spacemmorpg.com/ not sure which one to pick.


    But which one is the best in visual detail and flying those ships and shooting around.

    Battlestar Galactica online is nice an simple but I got bored with it pretty quickly. Black Prophecy is pretty good and not too complex either... Has pretty good graphics. I by far prefer Star Trek Online which is free to play now. It is a little more complex and you have ground missions. But ships are very customizable in many ways. It's worth giving a try. :)

    If only we had a newer Wing Commander game. :(

    Here's a lame video I made a while back of Star Trek Online:

    Yeah I like Star Trek Thanks for turning me on to it BTW.
    I like Home world and home world cataclysm, There is home world 2 as well but that will not play at all any more for some reason it did not play on vista nor windows 7.

    I tried battlestar galactica

    I don't see flying - can't use joystick and visually isn't really enough for me.

    I want real time flying.

    If you don't care if it's not an mmo, then I would recommend getting Freespace 2 from GoG (for about $5) and then the graphics updates (free). It's one of the best.

    When thinking of this type of game as an MMO, thats the only one that came to my mind. Surprised no one mentioned it earlier.

    Black Prophecy is a pretty decent F2P MMO.

    Evochron FTW! Freespace 2 Open is also another one worth looking at. Neither is really mmo. But Evochron's MP is fun as heck, and the MP community is 2nd to none..very helpful, friendly and kickass. That and Vice (the creator of Evochron) updates it regularly and it's very community/consumer driven update-wise.

    I never got into the X-series, I have them though. But there are quite a few options, just not really anything new or groundbreaking. But there are some solid indie titles and some true classics that still rock today.

    How so? If you wanna play the markets then ya sure.. but I've never been a trader and just killed and lived off the winnings from that.
