what I would like is a two sided game. where you select sides when you start the game. and the side you choose are the only people you can trade with. Lets call side A Star Trek and Side B Star Wars. Make it so that the Trekkies can only trade with other Trekkies while the Star wars Fans can only trade with those on the dark side. perhaps even give them different starting techs. as an example range for the Jedi and scanning for the Federation.
was about to start a new Star Trek game and gave this some thought. perhaps I’ll make a double galaxy and do a trek vs wars instead.
