So far, I am really liking this game.

There's a fairly simple but interesting economic model in place which is very reminiscent of Aurora. In Aurora, you have accessibility thingamajigs that determine your mining capability for example, in SL3K you have mineral value, which combined with your mining Tech level for that mineral determines your output.

There's also crime and piracy modeled, insurgencies and rebellions, it's fairly interesting, yet it doesn't blow your brain up. I think it's exactly because of this simplicity, that makes the whole economic period of the game so complicated. Where to build mines, where to build habs, etc, etc.

But I think it's a game about diplomacy, where the relevant resource for influence is.. well, basically, your industry. Trading trade goods brings you money, and is beneficial for both sides, and on the other hand, giving someone with vastly more military power a 'good' deal could help you live longer.

I'll just make it clear here: I am not gonna make alliances for alliances sake. If I make an alliance, it will be as 'protection' which will of course come with it's own fees and taxes. See you in game!

I grew bored with having to go through the forced mandatory tutorial doing all sorts of unrelated things like selecting forum avatars and writing stuff in the chat client.

Is there a way to skip it and actually play the game?

Just after the setup phase (that ends with the chat post), you will get to "How to build"  then "How fleets work"

Average time in the tutorial is eight minutes.  (so you were a quarter of the way though when you stopped)

The comm panel is used a lot in-game (for diplomacy and advisories) and your avatar is needed in that panel. 
So the first step is to get that set up and give you a glimpse of the comm panel.

So I guess that is a no to the question if it can be skipped?

I set your account to bypass that first section.

I meant this mostly as feedback, not personally. Most games / browser games I played that are a bit more advanced allow you an option to bypass the tutorial if you want.

The 2017 episode will begin in a few weeks.

Anyone that has not played before may want to join the current test game to get familiar with it all, before the real game starts
