Looking forward to the game also, but not an Rear Admiral though. I got my freelancer and after it begins maybe add-on 300i or Cutlass. I think they said they will start off with the hanger Star Citizen Hangar App WiP - YouTube
module and then go into dog fighting (subject to change).
*edit: Love the amount of time they are putting into the story and lore (the Writer's Guide). They have a timeline also.
Imagine using Oculus Rift with the game!
OK, I am excited!
