Crew
I have been playing this game for awhile and was wondering about you crew. How will you get a 'crew' if you can recruit them, will they have jobs like gunner or engineer. if not then will they be a stat like hull that can be lost in combat. if they can be lost then will it effect your ships ability to move, fire, ect. lastly can you have access if they can die?

The main way to get crew will be by going on to stations and hiring them. You might be able to get crew from some missions. From what i know, crew are just crew, there's no job to them.

You can lose crew and if you don't have the required number of crew, you ship will not work at full capability. I think if you run out of crew, your ship might become a dead fish in water.

darn, it would be nice to be able to build a great crew you can take from ship to ship, so when you start with a fighter and maybe 1 other crew (if the player count as 1) and take that person to your teir 3 crusier and so on. that way you must think about attacking another ship or you might lose your best gunner, ect.

I think we should have "Hero" crew slots that give us some benifits like a gunner hero gives you faster fire rate and also inprove your generic crew members

From FAQ thread(p.8)

Will there be a crew management? Maybe hiring and/or training?

Resource? So, a player should buy a crew at ports?

Basically yes, they "hire them on" and when the ship takes damage they can lose crew. Having a medical facility can negate some losses.

Might I suggest some form of AI or robotic alternitive to crew, cheaper than crew and do not require nutrition, leisure or medical but require more power and are far less effective, just an idea.

Reviving this with a question, if crew is just going to be a stat, and no more, then why do we have all these rooms availible to buy? statistics won't need no mess hall.
