It is going to have the same issues as the Idris unless I'm mistaken. Multicrew play.
Dude so many ships are out that have no main gameplay focus. The holodisplay in the 600I is a place holder, the starfarer and reclaimer main jobs are not in, most multicrew ships are just for turret gameplay right now anyway. They are obviously fine putting out ships with some placeholder assets more gameplay gets put in.

Fair enough. I was just thinking it would take more than one person to fly the thing.

Because the Glorious 890 is scheduled to be the first capital out right now.
The 890 is not a capital ship. People can argue whether the Polaris or any Corvette is a capital ship or not, but generally to be a capital ship one needs to be a "ship of the line". IN the SC universe, the smallest cap class hip is the Idris.

This is a different nomenclature than used for component size. Note though, that the 890 is not using cap size radar, for example. The Polaris is. One hopes the Carrack will too, since it is a military vessel specialized in scan.

The 890 will be available to the solo player, but that we’re this far in with so many multi-crew ships and no multi-crew gameplay irks me.

Says capital, it's a capital.

From a development point of view I understand what they are doing. Get the world and universe building out of the way first and then working on specifics will be easier. Odds are how the universe turns out will affect multi crew game play in some way.
