What about walking up behind the pilot and bopping them on the head or something? Someone else can then shoot the guy waking up in his bed and its off for beer and sandwiches.
In five years time SC essentially be what multicrew is in ED right now as more and more stuff is denied
Yeah with little ships this all works now I think. (Like you can steal the ship, but just joyride it for a while, not own it)
Although as I understand it, any ship with a medical bed (IE actually has a mobile respawn point, if set) gets stuck in a piracy loop where the owner respawns permanently in the medi bay, and pirates have to sit there endlessly killing them
But yeah, capital ships probably won’t even allow you to hold a packet of crisps by the end...
