The thing that is massively concerning me now is that, I want to pledge but (at the risk of sounding like a broken record) I want to know details first...
- why only 30 days? In that time many people who like space sims but are not constantly browsing the web for them won't even know about the project. I would rather suggest 3 months or so. I cannot see how they want to reach their goal in a month. Maybe the first one, but the other ones...
- I don't have a credit card and I don't use paypal. I would have liked other methods of payment as well, for example paysafecard. I could maybe ask a friend of mine, but... see below.
- at the moment I simply don't have the €200 available I would want to spend. I'm moving to a new house this month and expensive stuff is expensive. I would like to pay in December but... see above.

I want to be patient, but CR has said that there will be a limited amount of Alpha slots available and with the counter down, how can I even keep track of this?
I'll be really cheesed-off if the info comes through just in time for me to miss out
Exactly. At this point, I don't mind throwing down some dough, but I want to make an informed purchase, if possible.
On the other hand, I know that any details prior to public release may be subject to a Non-Disclosure Agreement. I've alpha-tested for Wargaming.net for their upcoming World of Warplanes, and they kept a tight lid on even what planes would be involved from being leaked out. I'll head over to RSI and see what I can find out. We may just have to throw caution into the wind and make a decision prior to the 30 days; it is what it is.
The description says 'top-of-the-line'. That implies the best that you can get' to me, at least for the initial release - undoubtedly there would be further ship releases along the way.*RSI Constellation is..the or one of..the highest tier of fighters in the game.
I don't think they can give an accurate statement on this till closer to the release date.The key detail I'm interested in knowing: minimum system requirements.
I'm sure that's just an omission for the Wingnut description. Besides, there is still mention of the custom USB stick with the 'game and all digital elements'.
I don't think any ship will be restricted to just military or civilian/citizen use. They might have used the Hornet for the videos, but I have the impression that all ships will be available to all players, you just need to earn the credits (and perhaps other in-game things like being in good standing with the ship seller's faction) in order to purchase them.
Both manuals are described as 42-pages. My guess is that they are supposed to be the same, but it's possible they could be different. Once the main site is working properly again, maybe they'll have time to fix little things like making the pledge descriptions more consistent.
