Call me cynical, but knowing how literal Bioware likes to be in order to do as little as possible, I'm going to predict that after this big hint that they are working on something they think we will like for space, we're about to see the unveiling of Tunnel shooters where a second player has control over the gunnery sight.
Supporter of having the following in the game:
Full Control Space Combat, More Playable Species (not unlockable),
Swimming, Sitting In Chairs, Planetary Day / Night Cycles and other MMORPG elements
MMO's are not meant to be films, and neither should they be movie-studio set tours

Cynical.

Would love to see them add Guild ships to the game and come up with guild ship space missions where somone pilots the ship, someone else is navigator, and the others maning the gun turrets.

They should give you a random mission at 50 for the daily and adjust it's difficulty accordingly. I can not stand to do Ascendancy Barrier more than twice a week.
Looking for a good woman. Able to clean, cook, sew, catch bait, and clean fish. Must have boat and motor.

I believe they stated they want to add guild capital ships in the future.

Oh the potential for this game.

I foresee many space bars getting a work out from folks trying to give their turret gunners motion sickness.

I think that Star Wars Galaxies had great space combat because you could actually man the turrets and fight while someone piloted the ship.

I also liked how it let you move freely throughout the map.

That would be awesome if swtor would do that.

That would blow and not in the way of having fun blasting things.


BTW great post OP, still you could have saved much effort saying:

1) BioWare deceived us
2) The space shooter blows
3) They don't want to add 3D free flight, multiplayer movement
4) You'd better quit the game now if you are waiting for a nice space sim.
