Talking to Team Covenant, Steve Kimball emphasized that X-Wing is a strong game because it has depth. Choosing pilots, droids, and armament is one aspect of that depth. With the announcement of "medium" sized ships, I think that aspect can get even … well, deeper. As everyone knows, the Falcon can be flown with a co-pilot and I hope the game will reflect this. Han Solo at the helm with Chewbacca at his side should be different, both in terms of costs and benefits, than Lando flying with Nien Nunb. But it would be really cool if you could purchase a whole crew for the Falcon and actually change who was doing what during the course of the game. (The classic examples are when Han and Luke hop on the guns or when Han and Threepio head back to engine room before the asteroid field chase in ESB.) Even if you couldn't have characters changing rolls during the course of a game like that, it would still be interesting to allow different characters to be "bought" at different rolls before play. So Han maybe would cost more as a pilot than co-pilot while the reverse was true of Chewie with each of them having correspondingly better benefits in their respective "primary" rolls.
What do you guys think?
