Q: What is the Neural Net?
A: The Neural Net is the on-board computer interface that is used for everything from tracking enemies to conduct trading. It also serves as a personal journal of sorts. It retains information you gather while exploring the universe that can be recalled at any time. It is your map of the stars, it holds your reputation indicator, it shows your cargo, where you are currently located and helps you determine where you want to go. It is the heart and soul of your ship and it's always there to be of assistance if you need information.

You can have more than one character established in MP mode on any given server and have more than one ship, but only one per character.
Q: Can you see the inside of the cockpit while flying?
A: Not in the sense of being able to see cockpit gauges, dials and throttle, no.

You can not change the point of sight while viewing through the inside of the cockpit such as looking left, right up or down either.
