    I was looking at the Hornet a while back, Lifetime insurance, but only if purchased before the 28th of June :(

    I've already got an Aurora LX, Hornet and Constellation in my hanger. I'm trying to resist the 325 but it's so tempting! ;)

    Ikr, lol..
    I have a hard time not just impulsively buying every ship.
    They look so dam goood.
    You can call me Ash Catchem, cause I gotta have em all.

    PS: No, I do not watch Pokemon.. XD

    I guess it's nice that you'd have LTI + the additional gear. I assume that would be replaced with those ships as part of the LTI.
    That's the only selling point I can find really.
    I'm thinking all of that stuff will be available through credits at launch.
    Like new engines and weapons.

    Only if it works. Last MMO that I remember where they tried such an economy was Ultima Online. They later had to change it, so that the world didn't end up looking empty and boring, and shops weren't completely empty with people submitting tickets "Shop lists are bugged. No items for sale"

    I do believe it says both players and NPC's, I assume by NPC's they mean to ensure there is always a little supply, so the world doesnt grind to a halt.

    +1 to the Racoon. According to what I was reading, if there aren't any PC's running the trade routes, NPCs fill in. So, shouldn't be too much of the empty shop syndrome.

    Anyone know how to upgrade my 300i to the 325a? I can't seem to find a way to do it.

    **Okay, I guess I have to reclaim my Bounty Hunter package and go with the 325a package.. I think I'm just going to wait.

    Got my Bounty Hunter card the other day too!

    I've always loved games like Tachyon: The Fringe, Freespace 1&2, etc

    this game does look pretty friggin sweet. I like the part where users can create ship designs, have them submitted, and then others can buy them. One ship that a sci-fi fan out there must make... well 2...

    An millenium falcon, and a Firefly. Of which both ships would make a great ship for a smuggler/bounty hunter, merc. The Firefly even has 2 shuttle crafts! how cool would it be to have two supporting shuttle crafts in battle!

    I hope to get one of the packages eventually... though i don't think i'll be going for the Grand Admiral. Maybe the Freelancer pack (not the digital one)

    I hear ya, man. Altho, I had pretty much forgotten it when it showed up in the mail, from Asia somewhere... I was like "WTH is this? I haven't bought off ebay for a while...padded envelope... hmm... what i- OH AWESOME!" Made for a cool surprise. You'll be pleased, it's not some thin sheet of foil, but a solid piece of metal to hold.

    +1 to that.

    Some new thing going on. Must of started recently. You can trade in your pledge for in game cash and use it to upgrade your package. So if you got the advanced starter kit and would rather have the 300i for example, you can swap them out. ^^

    Yeah that's what I did with my Digital Bounty Hunter package. I reclaimed it, then bought the Arbiter package with the 325a.

    As awesome as the limited amount of cgi and very limited actual ingame stuff ive seen looks. And as great as the concepts sound.. I can't sway myself to spend money on this game yet until I've seen more actual ingame mechanics, that are coded and working and not just whiteboard ideas.

    I think most people would agree with you.
