Traveling between planets will be accomplished through the use of public shuttles, which ferry characters from world to world.
The anticipated space component of the Star Wars Galaxies online game will add personal starships and starfighters to the game, which can be used for travel or space combat. The expansion also promises additional worlds, playable species, non-player characters, creatures, and a variety of other elements.
