    I was thinking that there could be random enemy ships that attack your ship while you are flying. You would be able to communicate with them to offer peace/attack/give peace offerings.

    I hope this gets implemented because it would make the so much sense and make space travel a lot more exciting

    Just to shoot down this thread. Space Ships is the only Safe Haven.

    However, there was talk of spaceship battles.

    This has been suggested so many times before. Like Fishcake said, ships are meant to be a "safe haven" for the player. Having them attacked defeats the purpose.

    This will probably be added post-release, and the devs will presumably be taking the safe haven factor into account.

    Yessss... They will. Maybe if you post your ship anywhere besides planets with ship docking bays? Or space stations with ship docking bays?

    No matter where the location the ship is your only Safe Haven.

    It might be something you have to opt into. If you have it on, you're fair game. If not, you cannot attack or be attacked.

    I'm making a suggestion.

    Yeah that's a good idea.

    I'm into stressful and open gameplay, so that's a big reason for my suggestion. I don't really like newbie friendly mechanics.

    Well I didn't like the idea at first - your ship is supposed to be a safe place. If it disappears, how do you respawn?

    BUT - on second thought, if Pirates take you down, you may have to make an 'emergency landing' on a random nearby planet, where you would have to wait some time before the automated repair systems on your ship fixed the damage... could make for some interesting opportunities.
