Star Citizen once again has sparked my imagination the other today. After looking over the different ships and playing around the star map I'm left wondering what they have in store for us in the future. We're getting ships like bombers and dropships and it makes me think of what they could possibly have planned for the future. Dropships for example, this makes me think of the possibility of landing troops on hostile planets to try to take over outpost or cities or something along that lines. Maybe the planets could have been invaded by the vanduul or other hostile forces that took over and we have to land boots on ground to reclaim for the UEE? Perhaps we will see a real live war within the PU to which we will have to choose sides? Maybe UEE NPC's and real players fight together against these hostile forces to reclaim planets? Maybe we'll see vanduul capturing areas of space in real time, with patrols and fleets? Maybe the UEE will hire player organizations to help fight against those fleets and regain sectors of space? Perhaps players will be given the chance to play the vanduul or pirates ally with them against the UEE creating massive open space battles? Areas of space blocked off by mine fields and players can use Intel ships to plot safe passage through the mine fields? I've heard eventually it could be possible for players to run for government positions, maybe this could lead to office holding players to discuss actions of declaring war against other factions in the verse? Or maybe it could be simpler as something like using these types of ships, including bigger capital ships, to attack organization held stations or planetary bases? What other reason would you need a ship like an Idris other than large scale battles between factions or organizations? I have no doubt that organization battles will be a thing, but I'm hoping there's bigger plans for the types of ships we are buying such as the things listed. Wouldn't it be badass though? With Large scale battles where you have to seamlessly Fight your way through planetary defenses and land on a planet and fight your way to capture cities or bases from hostile forces all in real time and would lead to events that could change the course of the verse. It could be as massive as affecting how the economy works across the verse. Maybe a neutral planet in a war torn area could cause the economy to fall in that sector because they loose resources due to blockades or vanduul raids? Maybe weapons and fighter ship dealers would profit more in such areas. And so on...the imagination is limitless and I can only hope Chris Roberts has such plans in store for us all.

What are some of your thoughts, hopes, and dreams for the Future of Star Citizen (final game)?

Honestly, I just want everyone else to have a bunch of fun with all of the possibilities of the game. Myself, I just want to be able to get on, admire my fleet, have a reason to upgrade it (mainly in a way that I can be helpful to other people) and find something I'm interested in and good at, enough that I get off thinking about what I want to do tomorrow, and wake up thinking about what I want to do that day. I want some sense of accomplishment over the course of 10+ years like I had playing Everquest. If I could be an expert E-Warfare technician and become a vital asset to this org, and feel wholeheartedly apart of something greater than myself, then that would be my ultimate goal. Need me to spend the next 8 hours in this system watching someone? Got a good reason? Sure, I'd be more than happy to. Need me to mine this rock for the next few days? I can do that to. Need me to organize some sort of cargo transport, man a turret, watch your ship while you're on the surface of the planet? I'm that guy. If you piss me off, or mess with my friends I will send some size 9 torps up your ass as recklessly as necessary :P .That's what I want. That's me.

I'd like to see the TEST industries Pet Rock on sale or even just as Hangar Flair, and some of the TEST Weapons Research Labs more practical suggestions come to life in the 'Verse.

We have all theory crafted so hard it'd be cool so see some of it happen.

I'm imagining sitting planetside in my Herald with the side door open, all peaceful and serene like. Then in the distance is a commotion, like a herd of feral pigs making its way through the underbrush...maybe some laser fire. One of my Test brothers or sisters emerges from the jungle with two armfulls of 5 1/4 " floppies yelling "START THE SHIP! START THE SHIP!!!". They dive in the open door and we escape just in the nick of time. We got their Beer recipes. Worth a fortune on the black market sure, but hell no, we'll be keeping those for TEST use.

I'm hoping that in the future there will be some kind of base/city/colony building system. I would like nothing more than to find and explore new worlds and hammer out a life on the furthest edges of the frontier. Somewhere secluded, preferably hidden.

How else will stories of us begin with these legendary words?:

It is a period of civil war. TEST spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the United Earth Empire.


During the battle, TEST spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the KEG STAR, an armored space station with enough power to inebriate an entire planet.​
Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Glorious Leader Montoya races home aboard his starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save his people and restore freedom to the galaxy....
