One Comment:

  1. Okay so a few weeks back you were talking about how Elite might deal with commander death after the advent of space legs and I had a thought; what would you feel about there being a real-time delay between death and restart / resurrection / revival?
    It wouldn’t have to be a long duration, any time penalty would be a real incentive to avoid death and, given that a monetary penalty is no real penalty, not being able to play for say 15 minutes would be HORRIBLE.
    Anyway, just thought I’d share the idea in case you wanted something to discuss on a future episode.
    Keep up the good work… love the show etc.
