Just a query.  Does Eve have realistic-sized planets and distances, ability to land anywhere, and exquisite surface detail?

No. As of yet, you cannot land on planets, but it will come. (After stations, and on-foot combat). Maybe next year.

The space combat is good enough to keep you busy, and space is very pretty in this game.

Distances between stars and planets and stations are done realisticly enough that you have to warp everywhere.  Planets and moons are just background decoration at this point but by next year they want to add the ability to step out of your ship and travel around stations and I think traveling to the planets themselves is also something they are working on.
"Listen, I mean that from my knowledge of the world that I see around me, I think that it is much more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the results of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence than of the unknown rational efforts of extra-terrestrial intelligence."

I could see that turning out being an extremely complex SWG.

How do ships move in the game? Is it like a flightsimulator, or is it automated, or what?

From what I can tell, you mostly just say "Go here" or "warp here" And click autopilot.

This game has only one server. Every player that plays it is on this one massive server. The game is big enough in scope that even then it never gets crowded.

Yeah, I figured that out. Anyone here still play?

That's the entire point! I've experienced the thrill of become evil (not bad, true, evil), by bribing, lying and even assasinating enemy faction members, by infiltration their faction. It was very awesome to the max. I ended my spree when I destroyed a freighter containing precious Boosters (narcotics) and rare resources. I got away, as I supposed to be the sole escort to a nearby station.
