LOL. I'd actually love to do that. Damn shame there is no way to do so.
Yet . . . yet. I'm absolutely certain that, sooner or later, a programer with an avid love of WC is going to catch a wild hair and rig up a WCP/SO multi-player mod, and then I'll be owning all of you (with the probable exception of one or two, I'm sure).
That, or Origin might catch a wild hair and release a new WC with multi-player and more nifty features; in which case, I'll still be all about owning newbies and the weak-minded.
Of course, the dream multi-player WC would be the one with all ships from all games, customizing options (with limitations, of course), and co-op, duel, campaign, etc etc.
My personal dream is to play a part in a battle for an entire system. Flying off of a specific carrier, in a specific squadron, playing a specific role in each encounter. And, real battle plans, thought up and coordinated by players, with consequences for success/failure. The thought of flying second position in a wing of Broadswords on a strike against a Fralthra, with Rapiers and Epees flying escort to keep Sartha and Drakhri off my back, and watching my torpedo streak away towards my target . . . mmm . . . makes my heart race just thinking about it . . . oh HELL yeah!
