Just my first thoughts on the name. Sounds a bit clunky to me. Starward Rogue and Life at the End of the Universe are far better titles than Airship Eternal, but mashed together into Starward Rogue: Life at the End, it doesn't work for me.

Life at the End of the Universe seemed like a pretty good title although maybe it conjures up the feeling of a God game more than a shooter. Starward Rogue does completely scream shooter, though. One other minor consideration, are there any problems with having two games that start with Star?

For me, Life at the End of the Universe seems like the best title proposed so far.

I agree with this. Having a subtitle seems unnecessary and inelegant. I wasn't too fond of the "This World is Mine" after Stars Beyond Reach either, and, as far as I can tell, in conversation most folks just drop the subtitle anyway so it seems useless. Stuff like Tidalis, Bionic Dues, Skyward Collapse and so on are much more effective, I think. Plus, "Life at the end" seems truncated -- at the end of what? Life at the End of the Universe solves that problem and rolls off the tongue better.
It'll also let critics make jokes about The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, which might help publicity?

+1 for 'Starward Rogue: Life at the End' being clunky, especially the 'Life at the End' part rolling off like a truncated subtitle.

But eh, it'll probably survive either way.

Just a heads up that folks might be interesting in a redshirts phase of the alpha, which is around now: https://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,18148.0.html

I'm really tempted to put a forum "censoring" rule in place that changes "séance" to "sense (in a spooky kind of way)" haha.

Hey, wait! How would French people be able to speak about "faire une séance d'AI War"? How will we be able to coordinate on the AI War Meeting Grounds?? You're killing your French community! Argl!
Please excuse my english: I'm not a native speaker. Don't hesitate to correct me.

I wouldn't actually do it!  My wife would know, but: what does séance mean in French?
