I already tried Space Combat a lot of time ago... Actually, I didn't find it quite interesting. My spacecraft (the smallest one, I think it was the Hornet) continued spinning in a weird way, and I couldn't stop that... a "kill rotation" command like Orbiter would have been useful. And the stability adjustment almost always prevented me from turning...
Anyway, I downloaded lots of addons for that space sim. You can find them in the Space Combat section at X-Plane.org
but theres really nothing to shoot at
From this I assume you didn't try to put 7 Hornets for the enemy side
Oh, the message displayed when you blow up is quite funny
