In defense of how it flies I say Muse adds a form of computer aided flight assist in the form of...Steam Monkeys. Hoards of Monkeys with steam powered brains that are connected to the steering wheel and help the pilot fly ;D

In space they also imitate fighter jet sounds, explaining why fighter spacecraft maker jet sounds.

For that purpose, they have highly-developed vocal cords that can produce and transmit sound in a vacuum.

It looks so fancy... Almost like a place I would hold a cocktail party in, not use as a battle station.

I'm loving to imagine backstories... It looks to me like a ship designed by demand of a spoiled child princess. I can almost picture the engineers working their asses off to produce a ship without visible balloon so said princess could have a perfect panoramic view, and lay on her back and look at the stars... Then the kingdom falls in disgrace and the design survives in the form of a battleship, like a reminder of lost innocence.

Either that or some honeybadgering admiral tossed the snooty little pratt off the side and took it for himself.  Dapper as f**k.

Deal with it.

I love the spoiled prince or princess background. It would explain why the ship looks so fancy and why they would have such an over-engineered design when other ships function better and more easily. Now if I could have anything I would love for the death animation to occasionally be the ship flipping over.

That's a cushy balloon you have there. It would be a shame if some shotgun rounds found there way in there.

So there's our first shot of a tunnel. Still no visible hull or anything, but from the looks of it this is facing towards one of the ladders going up, with the gun fairly close behind the player.

Really interesting. I think I want to try sinking five harpoons into a target with that ship. Anyways, hope we get to see more of the Manta Ray soon and maybe even see its release alongside with the mine launcher.

oh man, what if I could harpoon the mines? I'd spend the rest of my time flying in reverse

I can hear it now in qwerty's voice. "Now here we see a metamanta using a basic mine/poon combination."

Hmm, the ship looks awesome and I really like the style... but how 5 guns pointing at the same spot is usefull in any way? I wish we could crew more guys on that ship to shot all the weapons at once... Imagine that... 2 gats and 3 flaks... one ship dead in 3 seconds... sounds balanced
