Its a great honour for me to be working on the project as Elite is something I grew up with as a child!
Heres also a recent interview I did for the team:

I was also born in the early 80s! (83), and I never played the original, but i did play the sequel in the 90s ... even though i didnt really understand what was going on
I really hope you continue to get enjoyment from it - we built it to last, and theres a lot yet to come
I do hope you guys come out with more paint jobs, btw, for various ships. Especially black and red
And one more thing. Finding the Heart and Soul Nebulas in the game's galaxy map, two nebulas that mean something to me, had me sitting and staring in awe for five minutes as I slowly twirled the map around to look at them in all angles. It really brought home the realization that you guys did in fact use actual data to recreate the galaxy. I was...speechless.
With added context I can say "OhIC, from a radness perspective the design is pretty optimal," but I do not revise my assessment of it's occupational safety.
