There will be bigger ships. Actually I bumped up the size of all of the ships yesterday after we released the screenshots.

Maybe I missed it, but will it be first person or third person, i.e. will I be able to sit in a cockpit ?

It's an isometric view point, similar to our previous games.

I liked the screen shots but was disappointed not to see a planet pic. Looking good so far.

Looks great. At least it doesn't look as stale as Din's. Here's to hoping for pretty good atmosphere like in Space Rangers 2 . Oh, you know, moving stars, asteroids, multiple background layers etc :P

This all looks very promising.
Maybe the only thing I'd have to complain about at this point is the small size of the star and planet in the third screenshot.
I know you can't possibly depict them at a somewhat realistic scale for a good number of reasons, but I think they could be made a lot larger still.

I like that one. Maybe have Din's voice as an easter egg.

There will be no lightning (well not that lightning); just beams, ballistics, and missiles (and I'm sure a several other things).

There will be plenty of different ships (ships galore!!)

Yes, all that is there. There is a pretty nice feeling of depth. As it is a space setting, it looks best in a dimmer room, of course.
