I loved flying all the different ship types in X3 (and its various flavors). I especially liked flying the more ponderous (and more deadly) ships.

As near as I can tell, in X-Rebirth, you never get to fly anything other than the Albion Skunk and occasional drones. I know that you can pick up other ships for your fleet but do you ever get to drive the other ships from the cockpit?


No. As you mentioned in your question you are limited to your one and only ship - the albion skunk - and drones. You can get other ships for your fleet but you won't be able to fly them by yourself. But you should be able to land on a capital ship of your fleet, walk to the bridge and give orders to the captain. So it's more like a passiv-mode, then actually flying those ships.

In addition I would like to point out, that the X series is very well known for their modding community. So it may be possible to fly other ships with some mods later on :)
