If there is one thing I'm having a slight difficulty accepting, it's this futuristic government in Star Citizen. I've not yet read all the lore updates, so I apologise if I ask a pointless question. In Wing Commander we had the Terran Confederation. It certainly seemed to mirror modern day politics with a unity we probably won't see in our life time and certainly a necessity to survive the Kilrathi war. This empire on the other hand, well to explain it simply, I'm a little uncomfortable at the thought that humanity would "revert" to such a form of leadership... Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike it. In fact it's quite interesting. From a character perspective, I'm now sure how my in-game self will fit in. In reality I find the thought of serving an empire a little daunting. But in-game, my character wouldn't know any different! From a meta-game perspective, it's refreshing. Aside from EVE Online, Warhammer 40,000 and Elite/Frontier, I can't think of anything else where we see futuristic human empires. And all of those examples are oranges to Star Citizen's apples. What are your thoughts on this?
