You know what would be really cool, if stars could go super nova.
Resulting in damage to buildings on a planet, some ship loss or heavy ship damage, but also dumping a lot of resources to be processed on the system.
It is space, stars do go supernova, supernovas do create the heavy elements in the universe. and generally speaking, most super novas don't result in black holes.
I'm not really asking for this to be implemented, but maybe you like the idea and will add it in a future release. i just think it could really end up mixing things up, and make the game a bit more unpredictable.
