Gameplay Feedback
Interesting game so far, it definitely has a lot of potential. Just noting down things I've noticed while playing. Do note that I'm on a Mac, so some of the bug/glitch notes might be Mac specific.

- Zooming in/out in hangar can be 'slow' sometimes. One 'tick' of the mouse scroll wheel barely moves the camera. Other times it will zoom at the proper rate.

- Flight mechanics seem a little clunky, and don't really feel like I'm flying. This might be because of it being Alpha still, but I thought I'd note it. The game "Star Conflict" does a brilliant job of making space flight feel amazing - perhaps it could be tweaked to be more like that? I think the reason why it doesn't feel good is because the ship itself does not move. It simply changes direction, but it does not sway/drift etc. It is glued to the camera, and is too static to feel like it's doing anything. Flying also has no indication of speed, aside from the speed meter on the bottom. For example, in Star Conflict, there are particles that zip along the sides that show you are going fast, and gradually disappear as you slow down. (Star Conflict is free, so if anyone want's to see/feel what I'm talking about, go try it!)

- No sound when turrets/guns fire. I see the animation of them turning/targeting, and bullet like lines firing towards the target, but no sound. Intended, or bug?

Those are the only things that I can think of right now, aside from general things like no options, tutorial, guides, etc. that I'm not expecting at this stage, anyway.

[Shift] + [MW] will scroll faster.

There are dust particle around you. I can see them when moving. It's still need tweaking.

Sound of a lot of things was removed. Will be work on later on.
