Completely unexpectedly, this game is more about exploration and finding interesting phenomena on planets to discover rather than a trading simulator or combat. The combat is great fun, it has one of those module based ship builders so you can design your own, and the writing is really good. Most of the gameplay involves flying around the galaxy scanning planets, and many of them have a paragraph of text / event with choices and they're really interesting. Way longer than I was expecting, which I guess can be good or bad? Can definitely recommend it for 20 hours or so, but all the reports I'm reading say the end game is broken and the plot is never fully explained.
