So I know this is a rather superficial idea but it would be nice to have the agents, named pirates and whoever else actually have voices, this would be exceptionally nice if you heard voices during missions instead of having to open up your local chat or having that pesky popup when you enter a room.

There is a lot of text, voice actors for all of it would cost a lot :)

It's probably going to have to happen though at some stage for the game to keep attracting new players. Windows of text are not very appealing now, so they will need updating. Maybe with WOD, Dust & Incarna there will be a need for some full-time voice actors who can be seconded to updating things in Eve.

Priority should be given to the in-space windows and local chat fluff (who would you get do do Krull?), with in-station agent conversations being done later.

You'd think at this point someone would have designed a fairly realistic voice synthesizer, at least, one better than Microsoft Sam or Jane or whatever they're using these days.

Doesn't really make sense since EVE doesn't have sound, though.

Wing Commander / Freespace style comms chatter would be nice.

You know, with such a large playerbase, I'm sure some out there would be willing to voice-over an NPC for free. Or to convince their non-EVE siblings or friends to do so.

This concept is viable, best example of it is the movie 'Iron Sky' that's coming out sometime this year.
They pooled voluntary artists, programmers, and lots of actor-extras via the wreckamovie.com site.

Who would object to having his voice eternalised in EVE?

I like the idea. Yes, there is a lot to talk, but not the whole text needs to be spoken - maybe just the greetings or the objectives and reward.

+1 for the crowd-sourcing idea of producing the voice-overs. With the eve-voice distortion feature, we can already produce them by ourselves.
