    You’re not supposed to go straight through the storyline in Galactrix. You’re supposed to go do quests & spend time doing the other things first. As you encountered, if you DO go right through, you’ll hit a brick wall. There is so much more to do & it wants you to go through that. :)

      Sounds like bad game design. Noah should be able to go through the main quest if he wants, since that’s an option. If the game is built around the side quests, well then that should be part of the main quest.

      Either way, the game should cater to both types of player. There shouldn’t be a wrong way and right way in an RPG like this.

      This all makes me love “Dragon Quest IX” so much more, since you can choose anyway to play and still make progress. You can charge right through, with just a tad of grinding, or go off and do anything else. Either way, you win, unlike “Galactrix.”
