    @icebalm How is the avenger? It currently sits at the top of my possible ships to get, would you say worth?

    yeah you need to click and drag the avenger into the middle of the screen first:

    Open the table
    On the SHIPS tab you should see a small hologram of your ship floating
    Press and hold TAB and click and drag your ship to the middle of the holotables' screen
    Click and drag the different headings (weapons, power, thrusters, etc) to highlight separate parts of the ship
    Hover over the parts to see the individual stats
    Click and drag the parts to the right of the ship to un-equip them
    Click and drag the un-equipped parts back to the ship to re-attach them
    Close holotable to see changes

    I guess it depends on what you're looking to do, more fighting, more exploring?

    I think so, it's pretty comparable to the 325a which is $5 more. The Avenger seems to be a bit faster and has more cargo space, where the 325a has more maneuvering thrusters and 2 more upgrade slots. As for weapons, I dunno, what's better, a Kruger Tigerstreik T-21 or a K&W Mass Driver? I have no idea. Wish they would give us some kind of indication about numbers and such. What's a better shield, the Gorgon Defender ForceWall or the Sterne Katzen AG Hornisse-36? I'm going with German engineering on this one. /brilliant

    Of course, both of these just seem to get destroyed by any of the Hornets, I'm just not made of money. :D

    Yeah on the ships tab I don't see any ship hologram at all :(

    EDIT:

    Looks like it's because the 2 seater version is the "trainer" variant of the Avenger and it's a placeholder! The actual final ship is supposed to be a single seater, so it's not done yet...

    @Patrick check out the redesign of the actual Avenger ship, they pretty much added everything I thought the ship was kind of missing, including bunk, holding cells, and a crawl way from the pilots seat to the cargo hold.

    I'm sure there will be people who need crew (multi crew ships) or people with multiple ships who will rent them out so you can make money to buy your own. I think lots of people will go that route.

    So let's say I'm flying around in space with my awesome fighter spaceship and than I get jumped by a bunch of bandits who shoot me down and I don't have insurance, than what?
    Or let's say I turn away from my monitor for a second and crash into an asteroid and my ship explodes.

    I'm wondering about the open world pvp type of thing. Let's say my wig an and I both get owned by a bunch of fighters and we get shot down.

    I have no idea how it worked in Eve, just would like to find out how it's going to work in SC.
