There's lots of content with exploring space, building Stations, crafting items, or just scanning for loot.

I pitched an idea to my friends about an FTL mmo and you sir hit it almost on the mark. Seriously, this is SCARY close to my idea, I will definitely play when this reaches steam, can't wait :)

Won't be a subscripton, you pay once for a ship package. This gives you infinite access to that ship if you ever lose it, but you can build anything else in the game.

Looks cool, hope it's free, or cheap. If there's a monthly fee, It's an automatic no.
