When you turn off pirates in the starting options, and then later encounter an abandoned ship that is supposed to trigger a pirate ambush, nothing happens. The ship never becomes claimed and the encounter never clears, you are able to re-encounter it indefinitely, always to the same lack of effect.
In the Storage Tech field, the tech "Large Passenger Compartment PC-300" comes after "Massive Passenger Compartment PC-400" which is clearly meant to be (and is) better. PC-300 in fact comes after the Mega-Density fuelcell, so it's placement there seems most certainly to be a bug.
This last one is less a bug and more an.. issue?
The two racial bonus techs, Megatron Z4(shield) and NovaCore NX-700(reactor) are considerably inferior to the techs that immediately precede them. All of the other racial bonus techs are improvements to the otherwise top level components, it makes no sense for these two to be a step backward when the player finally reaches them. Now, both are better than their predecessors in a particular way. The shield recharges faster, but has so much less maximum power that this does not even come close to making up for it. The reactor is just slightly more efficient in fuel consumption, but is extremely inferior in output, storage and size.
Thanks for listening to us and our gripes, and thanks for making a great game. I have no doubt that, with the way you guys listen to us, it will become one of the absolute best on the market.
