Oh... yuck... so you have to grind time in the regular game to be able to fly the ships in this expansion huh? Well that settles that.. heh.
seriously, for anyone saying they want to check it out when this expansion is released, you might want to get started now. it's going to take you a while to get there, i'm sure.
i remember i started playing again when the vehicles were announced. took forever to finally get one and the novelty wore off in about a day. plus it pisses me off how they just magically appear out of your "datapad". not sure how they should have handled that instead, but i think i'd like to see some kind of parking lot, or something. heh.
