Prague, Czech Republic, September 9th 2013

Please, PLEASE add Xenos, some kind of xenos threat, I realize this may not be on the agenda, but if you do, with some kinda space guns, maybe rocket propelled bullet weapons that require special resources and management, or flame throwers, or mechs, the game would be amazing, especially with AI team mates, surviving in space, and having research projects, and then XENOOOOS, meteor showers, black holes, etc
AND KICKSTART ITT!!!!

Flame-throwers wouldn't work in space... plasma-throwers, however....

Wormholes would be fun, get sucked into one and thrown out of another at high speeds, preferably into someone else :P
