* FasterThanLightTravel: Via Jump Points, wormholes used for interstellar travel- most established ones are stable, other not so much. Combined with the fact that even stable jump routes can be hazardous enough to be heavily dependent on computer-assisted flight (based on data gathered by explorers who scanned and charted those jump routes) for safe travel, this makes ''info runners''- essentially couriers [[RecycledInSpace in space]]- a vital profession within the Human society as a whole.
** There is also Quantum Drives that can be installed in most ships for intra-system travel, allowing ships to traverse interplanetary distances in seconds after only a short spool up period, though it can only travel in straight lines and drains fuel. Quantum flight, however, is NOT faster-than-light (despite being extremely fast by normal standard, it's still a fraction- albeit an increasingly larger fraction as the technology evolves- of speed of light).

** According to its second Q&A, MISC Prospector (a one-man mining ship) is joining the Aurora in this regard- again, the airlock is said to be close enough to the cockpit so as not to make escaping a stricken Prospector difficult.

* ArmoredCoffins: The Aurora has no ejection seat...... in an universe where damned-near every ship that mounts a quantum drive has one. Sure, its airlocks are virtually right next to the pilot's seat, but having to turn around to access them means that escaping from a stricken Aurora is still a touch slower than being simply propelled out of a stricken other-ship.

Chris Roberts took about ten years off after ''Freelancer'' to make movies with mixed success (such as ''Film/LordOfWar''), and in 2012 he came back to pitch a PC MagnumOpus, a space simulator with vast quantities of SceneryPorn, combining a single player portion (titled "Squadron 42") that ties into an online multiplayer portion having both MMO and player server traits. Due to a lack of major publisher interest, he turned to crowdsourcing the funding through his website at [[http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com RobertsSpaceIndustries.com]]. Squadron 42 is scheduled for release in 2015 and Star Citizen is slated for early 2016. In the mean time content is being released in seperate modules, such as a hangar module to view player bought starships and a dog fighting module where players can engage in multi- and singleplayer dogfighting matches.
