Just a wild Idea.
When a ship is down to structure the aggressor could have the option to launch a boarding party. At this point the ship becomes invulnerable. It is then queued into the "DUST alt" game where people can either join to attack or join to defend the ship. The setting would be the inside of the ship with its miles of walkways and rooms and the gameplay similar to call of duty. The final outcome would either give the pilot 30 mins immunity or turn the ship over to the aggressors with the same immunity.
I know it's a bit far fetched but from a sales and marketing point of view I should think that most PvP corps would also purchase this game too just so that they didn't have to rely soley on mercs to save their ship.
It would also give a much closer relationship between Eve and DUST.

You see if this was posted in 2003 you would had tons of replies. Problem is all these people are gone and there only monoclers and 2007's and these are not hardcore sci-fiers mostly.

Somehow EVE is not "The GAME" anymore. Part of what made EVE "The Game" for me was the anticipation that someday EVE would expand to become the space game we all wanted.
It's not going to happen. Not with CCP on the helm.

I feel he is totally right with this statement. I think that would be a sweet idea, and a load of fun, but I don't see it happening sadly, especially if the ship is a randomly chosen map where nobody sees the layout before everyone spawns. Unfortunately the forums aren't as populated as they should be with a game this popular, I'm seeing.

Actually boarding parties may be a intresting change to the way we fight. Having a specific troop transport ship that launches boarding torpedos, and considering specific ship classes probably have the same internal layout, it would be easy to make maps to fight inside them. Then you could either destroy the ship or take it. Also this type of ship could be used for supporting other dust related functions, and possibly other types of planet to space interaction. I support this.
