I Like the spirit, people here including myself are all very excited !
Just thinking about building my new ship, outfitting it with new technology, ships and landers, as i explore the planets finding old shipwrecks with blueprints of super technology from historic earthly races or newer generations. Finding a race stuck on a planet unable to leave as their ship broke down and they had to survive for an x amount of time hoping someone got their distress signal and help rebuild their ship.
Then after exploring the universe needing to return home, in a far off distance part of the universe, hyperspace back home battered and bruised the ship showing the signs, and barely outrunning and outmaneuvering foreign encounters as it travels towards the home system but alive to offload cargo, bring back intel, repair and re outfit/refuel my ship, and go and explore the wondrous, strangeness of the universe over and over again.
Discovering new planets, strange happenings, secrets, perhaps somewhere a wormhole to a multiverse, the interesting races, and unique and beautiful planets to explore and harvest from.
Setting up a basic base just for harvesting and protection from the elements, exciting new alien ships and worlds, It feels like i have already started playing the game ! ! If i get so immersed losing track of time, then it would be a pioneering success ! That's how i felt when i played SC2 back in the day.
