Reading the rules atm.

Becouse no one knows exactly what is in your fleet until you encounter them. Would it not be more thematic if only the two involved players get to see the combat pieces?

Not letting the other players see what is there.

I think yes, it would be more thematic.

I know saw the rules they are displayed face up in the hex sfter the combat ia done. And what i understand they will remain face up until they reach a friendly colony or homeworld?

Yes, but this one is easy to houserule - provided you have enough space on the board to do so.

Arguably more thematic indeed (but you could interpret the existing rule as reflecting that when someone gets attacked they broadcast warnings/news about it across the galaxy...)

But less playable (less practical to implement, and also it will be rather boring for players not involved a battle to have to not watch while the battle is resolved).

You could houserule that players not involved may watch it, but after then after the battle all remaining ships are displayed face down.

OR, and I've been tweaking this for a variant of my own (but it requires a bit of roleplaying):

Players involved must narrate out loud their actions, so those not directly involved may hear about whats going on on the battle, but not see it happening (like it's broadcasting throughout the galaxy).

SO many possibilities!
