if there has ever been a enemy in starbound that we have wanted to fight more then ever in starbound then it have to be big ape. there are already so much fan fiction on big ape and his army already and even before the game came out of the beta. we had heard so much about big ape in the beta and we where so hyped to go against him, i didn't mind the plot twist that much even though i mean that it could have been don so much differently and better even with the way it was don. but what we really do mind is the shortness of the quest line and how simple it was. I for ones was really let down when i discovered that there was only one quest with big ape, i mean really? this major huge advanced empire that got its civilization spread across the galaxy, and he is holding till on a tiny microscopically small ''secret'' laboratory that everyone seems to know about, on a deserted jungle planet with barely any security and absolutely minimal protection, we could have taken out the hole base with our pre upgraded space ship in one swoop, if we only known how to operate the weapons on it. even the smallest tyrans have a personal army on about one hundred to a thousand man protecting him. i was expecting a Huge advanced oppressed civilization planet like the cardassian capital planet. with propaganda tv screens on and in every building and soldiers patrolling the streets. (yeah i know the plot twist but even then he should have been holding up in a bigger place, we could have been beam down on a building) but if there is one thing i have learn from bethesda then it is that a good story made bad is not written in stone. like the origianl story on fallout 3. it was horrible before it was changed and it was changed aftther release i feel bad for the one that pre ordered. Any way you guys can change the story if you want to or you could even continue and with the real leaders behind the miniknog. there are alot you guys can do just what ever you do don't stop the apex quest line there. i highly suggest that you guys try out the cult classic [Beneath a steel sky] its free on gog for some inspiration and it got a similar plot.
