Thanks Quasispatial for your story, I could almost imagine a ship...going somewhere...and doing something...sort of.
But your advice on fuel I will definitely take to heart. I'm planning on making a flight plan that will take me in a circular path with the neighboring stars for early interstellar exploration. It would seem that mining might be a basic source of revenue, so I'll chart which planets have the highest mineral density for future reference. Then I'll return to Starbase and offload and make any necessary upgrades, and head back to the "outer rim" and continue. This should hopefully alleviate some of the fuel restraints during my early game, assuming of course I don't run into any other problems that would require more immediate drastic measures.
You should always leave time for the unexpected!
