A Trekkie's Lament

Hello all,

For many years, I have been hunting for a first-person spaceship simulator that allows you to both travel the galaxy AND walk around on board a moving spacecraft. Star Trek TNG gives me the itch and the franchise titles are pretty dated and/or not player friendly.

Steam has been flooded with low-effort examples for years now. And sure, there are many excellent space titles that approximate this (e.g. Mass Effect), but alas no cigar.

In the last Autumn Sale, I managed to get a discount copy of Empyrion which does a great job with survival and exploration mechanics. It helps that the game looks absolutely magical at times. To my disappointment, however, I learned pretty late that you cannot walk around while your ship is in motion. (The physics of vehicles in general are pretty gross, too.)

Will I ever live out my spacefarer fantasies? Or is trek a lost cause?
