Have a great idea for the game? We'd love to hear it!

I'd like to see smaller craft being able to dock to objects in the same fashion it was done way back in gameplay update 5. Fly up to station, and then press a key to gently land on the station without fear of crashing.

Two years is hardly a definition of soon.

Sarcasm? Yes, I can't detect sarcasm to save my life.

Wow, a vid I've not seen.

Already this trumps X Rebirth, in that you can land on a carrier and take control of it just by being docked.
*SO* cool :) :)

Yes, I love the docking mechanism shown in this vid.
