Nothing in this game strikes me as the ships having a crew other than the half-arsed attempt at injecting some lore based on slaves.
Where are all the frozen bodies of the crew when a ship blows up? They all get magically evaporated while your body always survives?
I repair damage with nanites, not the crew.
I am injecting skills and i am learning skills. If we had a crew, i would train them not myself. From were i am sitting in my capsule it looks like i am the one with the skills to run all the systems on the ship and my implants and training enables me to do all these things more efficiently. I don’t see were the crew comes into this.
I am training Caldari defense systems. If there was a crew i would just hire Caldari defense engineers, no need for me to learn the skill and if i learned the skill, no need for me to hire crew for it.
This whole crew nonsense is bollocks and you know it.
