I wonder if this is the annouced fan expansion. We had a poll about fan-wishes for a fan expansion.

Since this is called pack one, I wonder if we'll see another expansion of this kind this year...

This is it.

It may be called Pack One since it doesn't include ships for the expansion races (Exiles, etc.). Pack Two may depend on the success of Pack One, and it would probably be a year later at the very least...

I'm guessing no, it's not. Since all the original creators are credited and working on it, I'd say it's a legitimate expansion. If there were new names being credited, maybe. I think this is just a fan idea that came into fruition.

It is definitely the "Fan Pack" that was discussed here:

That "Fan Pack" was always a legitimate expansion being created by the original designers.

Yes, I know where it originated from. I was merely saying that "Ship Pack One" is not a "fan expansion." Decisions were made by fans, however.

Okay, but I believe the OP was specifically referencing the "Fan Pack" discussed in the linked thread. I don't think he was asking if this was an unofficial, fan-made expansion....

Ship Pack One was originally called Fan Pack.
Idea was to bring fans nice stuff to add to the game. In our queries, new ship designs were to most popular wish, so gradually the pack evolved to include mostly ships. So, renaming it as a Ship Pack seemed appropriate. One was added with a hope that the product would be a success and we'd get to do number Two some day.

This is interesting but it doesn't seem very substantive. What am I saying, I'll probably get it. But I'm disappointed they didn't include the little mini expansions like Supernova or Pulsar.

They decided to just reprint those at the same time so that those who want it can get it, but those who don't want it don't have to buy it. Seems pretty sensible..
