My hope is that they rework death - having your ship destroyed launches you in an escape pod. That escape pod is 'opened' at a station or starport, allowing you to continue your journey (on foot). With your ship 'rebuy screen' being an insurance desk at said station/starport.Has the question been asked / answered, how and will Cmdrs stay dead?
OK within the first answer FD confirm Cmdrs on foot CAN "die". But has it been asked, what happens next. Do they stay dead? or is there some magic wand of re-spawn nonsense going on?
I'm also 99.9% sure this won't happen!
