If we weren't a piratanical syndicate, I'd join a mining corp and get one.

Our engineering team is currently in the process of updating the actual system by which we apply damage and moving to a physically based system for the application of damage. What this means is that rather than each projectile (energy or ballistic) having a prescribed damage value against shields, hull plating, or components we are actually going to base the damage off the mass, velocity, and density of the projectile. Likewise on the ships we will be expanding the materials and the properties of their hull plating and shields to react in a proper way to the physical characteristics of the rounds impacting them.

In 5 years time when they release this game and some of you have had five minutes between work and changing your kids nappies to give it a go, I will gladly pull on my skin tight sexy space jumpsuit to come and destroy the hopes and dreams of space nerds the world over. I assume by that stage Doc would have put off some sort of major surgery in order to purchase some $10k ship that I can ride along in.
