Docked and trading. Note I can't buy the 10GJ shield as I need a relation with the Argon of at least "AF Guardian", and I'm only a lowly citizen. Also, I can't afford it. And it won't fit in my ship.
Deciding to prey on a civilian ship, I get a few lucky shots, and you can see it's shield flaring up. In the top-right is the ship's captain, deciding not to surrender.
The orangey blobs are the remanents of the civilian ship I blew up. Behind it, surrounded by red (indicating hostile) is a police ship, who didn't like me shooting up the innocent ship.
The police get a few well placed shots in while I'm trying to take screenshots. Evil.
After a barrage of beam fire and a couple of missiles, my ship exploded, taking me with it.

A really large solar collector space station
The textures can stand the closeup test as this example of the solar collector shows.
Docking sequence. Some space stations look really weird but also impressive at the same time.
