    So its something we could jump into as a group? I was interested in this last year. I've found it hard to get back into elite, mainly due to having to relearn all the controls! I dont really want to jump back in until its 'worth it'...

    I think so, as not everyone needs to fly. You can even hire a transport to the mission site. Then you actually sit in a passenger seat and are flown to the mission.

    It's basically an fps, looks as good as you'd expect for Elite's style of graphics. The missions that are not battle focused (indeed even the battle focused missions) have some sort of problem solving going on. Gear can be levelled up, new kit bought, bio and geo items on planet scanned and colelcted to be sold.

    Of course, knowing how to fly is useful, but you don't have to know more than just how to fight or perhaps drive the buggy. I've not tried a battle missions yet, opting more to play solo and try to recover the power and put out the fires on planet. Twice now I died, the items you need have to be searched for, but become easier to find once you activate terminals, then you get into buildings but could be attacked. Everything seems to have a place in the mission, also you have ot keep picking up energy cells and med-kits as fire really hurts, as in really, walk into it and you die, even through walls it can damage.

    There are 8-10 NPCs around the station offering up missions, so no lack of things to try out even in a one station alpha. I'm impressed they actually brought us a playable alpha, allbeit limited in features, they are showing a level of maturity of the content and new features that Frontier always produce. No half built buggy rubbish, no crashes or falling through floors (yet fingers crossed!).
