Have to play it by ear by the sounds of it. 
Can we build some sort of station to safely park the ships in? Not sure if the game allows that or not.

Not sure. I remember seeing something about station building, so possibly.

I would like to see a time line of expons attempts at ships. There were some beauties.

There was indeed. I will have to check my screenshots. Did you get any?

My favourite was the tiny ball attached to a huge solar panel. Think that lasted all of 5 minutes.

I don't think I took any screen grabs. 
The solar express was a beauty, still full points for thinking outside the box.

It was proper funny actually, what with all the marvelous contraptions he was coming up with... then the tie fighter that he took the "wings" off and it was just a huge cube floating in space with no propulsion.

what can I say, I thought for a brief moment I might be on a winner if I had masses of energy regen, but there seems to be an odd drag element in space related to ca - the borg would be proverbially bum-f*cked in this universe.

There were some interesting pre-built ships about but I couldn't get the .xml to register, assume it was missing formatting headers or something for the game to recognise. Pretty much all of them required at least, titanium though.

I find this like empyrion - it takes quite some time to get off plane faces right, I remember tying to fix the USS yacktown bridge after I parked it into that space station, getting to grips with triangular/pyramid faced blocks was a bit of a brainteaser.

I'd be interested to see if it was possible to make a borg cube that handled 'ok' the advantage would be a huge amount of storage for the volume, and if you could get the proportions right, could keep adding shells and scaling up its size...

Indeed. It's all a learning experience. Very difficult to judge how much of this and that you actually require on a ship in this game until you have built it and found out your mistakes - learn by doing and all that.

Still, with us all helping out and sharing resources, we should be golden. I for one, enjoyed your various contraptions.

Just having a bit of a piss about and found a way north east towards the center.

There is a worm hole thing that takes you miles but have stopped there.

Found a few green rocks and have mined a bit and sent you all enough to build a shield.

Not really, sounds like more than it was. Just back tracked from where we were until i found a way forward.

I mined some green but it takes ages. I just divided it by 4 and sent it to you guys.

Also where people were blowing stuff up i had collected some bits and sent them to Dyson and Meg so their kit should be on a par with mine and jegs.

It can. But not much. I tried to get some more green to share with you guys but I keep getting killed. I think we need some combat units to cover the mining. I have a nice lot of weapons for you guys.

So I took a wormhole to the West of our original starting location... here
here

 (seen down the bottom left)...

Which took me all the way up the top, where I started heading south... closer map of the north of the galaxy
closer map of the north of the galaxy

, where I was heading down.

That's where I found green in abundance. I will try and illustrate better if this is unclear.
