I wonder what bounty hunters bring to SPAZ other than a couple of new ship hulls. What are they actually useful for? Other than adding targets for me to blow up.
I played through SPAZ a couple of times before bounty hunters were added and the game was fun. But on a recent play through with bounty hunters in the game, I wondered why the developers bothered to add them to the game. They don't seem to add anything but an occasional attack when I warp into a system, at least in the first "half" of the game. Do they become useful later? Or are they just another volunteer source of goons and data?
