One of the things I want to emphasize in the game is character development for the ship crews. In order to do this I've started implementing personnel "events" in the game. This will allow you to see a list of important events that have occurred to that character during play. It will track things like being hired, fired, participating in a battle, discovering a new star system, etc. This will also allow me to implement a sort of badge system, so characters can earn medals like battle stars for combat or a ribbon for making your 100th jump. I plan to do something similar for ships as well.
