Just sat down for a bit to take all of this in, and I'm definitely hyped. I've been looking forward to this specific mechanic for about as long as I've played the campaign, so to now actually see that coming... Woo!

(and yes, I believe I've used tags in the past -- they've got good potential for quickly showing how a specific part of the game evolved over time, and I vaguely recall using them to cruise around story-related things for my own mods too)

Realy excited about this. :) However i do hope we can customize them a little bit. Even giving them custom names would be a welcome addition!

So I'm a bit late to this news, but it sounds fantastic! Any chance of certain officers being naturally better with certain ship classes, like, say, an ex-pirate being a great frigate commander or an ex-military officer being better in a cruiser or the like? Maybe a preference for being a carrier commander, with associated leadership skills (fighter refit and speed bonuses)?

That's what Salamanders are for, they even regenerate now. Shooting out a ship's engines with any weapon works, actually.

I have a question about what will happen if officer's ship will be destroyed? Will officer have a chance to use save capsule and go to flagship?

They don't die for any reason. This is probably change as the campaign is more fleshed out.
