I just took out 12 illwraths (awsome) with 2 earthling casualties. The zoom in makes it fairly easy to target them.  They missles are like long range spears. Took a while though.

Favorite heavy ship: If you count Melnorme Trader in, I choose it. If not, tough luck.

Favorite light ship: Slylandro Probe. Fast and neat.

How do you pilot that thing - I never seem to control it the way the CPU does... How much practice does it require?

As a pkunk "master", not much. All you need is fast reflexes and quick thinking.

The slylandro can be harder than the pkunk because you dont know which direction it facing. Its weapon is better, but less consistant than the pkunks. It also has the sudden reverse ability.

actually from what I've read it's n interia-less ship much like the skiff gravity has no effect on it but the differnce is that is constantly in motion.

To stop you have to keep pressing the thrust key over and over again. I think thats what you meant, but I couldn't quite tell.

Gravity does have an effect on it, but only briefly; every time its engines get a chance to thrust, the game nullifies any attraction to the planet.
Cover a probe with VUX limpets and send it near the planet, and you'll see what I mean.

I see what you mean.  - O and I have always wondered, once I teleported a skiff in the middle of the planet. It blew up.
Then I teleported a skiff to the right side of the planet (It was still in the planet, just slightly off center) And it Lived! - It was stuck, but I blew up 300 points worth of ships (awsome level)  because all their shots would hit the planet, they would hit the planet and my laser fired out of it! - Anyone else do that experience that bug?

No, that has never happened to me. I have heard stories of it. It seems to only happen when I'm not around. Angry

It is only stories... It happened to me many times that I teleported not in the center of the planet and got killed. I think someone here is lying...  Grin
