Yeah, EP is even thinking about buying an icade core for this game and Danmaku 2, pretty amazing...

I think we all have our own preferences... But I think the most popular would be the Trinity

I would like to see the topic of drones that fall from the sky at random times or fixed intervels if possible.

Another thing I like is how enemy ships look like recognizable sci fi ships, e.g. One looks like a Romulan Warbird. An enterprise, galactica, Klingon, star destroyer etc. A rotating base ship (bsg) would be cool too.

To each his own, the Trinity and the Corsair are the most popular and accessible ships. Be sure to tap the video icon in the Ship Selection screen to see a short clip of the ship in action.


I might just add a missile drone, coz well, drones are cool and missiles are cool.
