  is the cap ship battle... looks like the shields were not working so it should last a bit longer.. but that explosion was very epic.

I had seen the cap fight as well. Was disappointed to a small degree, but still satisfying, and yes, awesome explosion at the end. I'm curious how a larger fight would play out with one on both sides, I would think they serve better as AA platforms instead of trying to duke it out, though I believe that would also depend on the type (M vs C) and load out.
I'll try anything once and do it again for fun.

Always out numbered. Never out gunned.

Most of the player stations on the Idris were either not shown or are not ready.  Shields / Power management / Navigation / Helm / Radar / Damage Control / Countermeasures / Command ..  I want to see that stuff. The shields were not even on during the battle so I am guessing in reality a real battle between 2 Idris and a few fighters each will take much longer.  Those were definitely the Military variant.  I hope we can upgrade our P and get a main gun.  They were punching holes in each other.

At least we'll all be retired by the time the game finally releases so we will have lots of time to play it!  :eyes:

SC won't be out for another 15 years, so you have plenty of time.

If you plan your timing well enough, they can be fully self sufficient teenagers who want nothing to do with you by the time you can play SC! And you'll already be stuck at home since they'll want your wheels... (driverless cars will still allow this even though nobody will get drivers license by then)

All I got to say is thank goodness we have LTI on this behemoth.  I have a feeling upkeep alone is going to keep us all workin for the man.
