Ok this was something I was hoping SWG would do, but it didn't happen. In Star Wars Battlefront 2, you have ship to ship combat, with the possiblity to board the enemy ships and attack from inside, while the battle rages outside. If this was in SWG I would have stuck around.
Now in STO case, it has been said, we will have ship boarding, while we are in ship to ship combat. Now I hope PE don't go back on this plan, cause this is one of the main things I am looking forward to with STO.
Nothing like pounding an enemies shields to almost nothing, then beaming over a raiding party to wreak havoc. hehe
Don't get me wrong, I want the exporation and other elements of Star Trek too, but if your going to have ship combat, lets take the gloves off, and do it the right way, and not water it down into a joke like SWG did with theirs.
Star Trek Battlefront is a good example of how a battle should go in space, I just hope PE is taking notes, and they take it a step further.
