    That excludes 99% of mainstream scifi. No Trek, no Wars. I'd consider B5 hard science fiction... so maybe that's a good thing. :)

    B5 had human-looking aliens, space fighters, hyperlight drives, psychic powers, and the concessions to realism for the human ships were more stylistic than practical.

    Of course, his explanation says the game will also have hyperlight drive because he can't implement time-dilation, and cloaking devices, so it's probably going to be fairly soft for hard sci-fi. So much for my short-lived dream of dealing with a gimbal-locked rotating section while I try to turn a ship.

    No mention of Newtonian physics either. I guess it's going to be just another space game without a pickaxe. ;)
