As a long time Starbound player (over 411 hours!), I make a lot of new characters, be it to try things out, or to experience the feeling that the amazing tutorial evokes again and again and again. From your comfortable university life to being thrust into an unknown world, all by yourself, to discovering that you aren't so alone after all...it's just incredible. My only gripe with the game as of now is that it doesn't have any follow-up for the Protectorate. Sure, there's a few books out there that talk about it (in an ironic sort of way), and the game establishes you as the "last hope" for the Protectorate, but there's nothing else about it. Being the interplanetary organization that it is, you'd think you'd find Protectorate outposts out there somewhere, happy to see you. Or at least a way to get Protectorate furniture, and actually help establish the Protectorate again through colonies. But you can't. There's nothing more to get from the Protectorate (or Earth, for that matter) unless you turn into an admin and steal assets from the tutorial. TLR: Terrene Protectorate support when?
