I, personally, don't mind waiting. I know its coming, and would prefer it to be unhurried. Otherwise we the people turn into the publishers we despise so much. And I think the level of openness is at a good level, I don't want to see everything prior to playing the game as it spoils the thrill a bit. I don't think that they should put up the new voted in ship for sale for real money, as too many people will just jump on it. I know I've bought ships, but when you have the ship you want your goals in game become more limited with a shorter ending. But thats just probably me. I do like that they're limiting the numbers of NPC crews you can have manning a ship though, I hope the Idris falls outside the one man ship though, otherwise large corps would be able to field dozens of them.
