No. They are both linked to the main plot, so you cannot play them if you start as Terran Commander.

(2) Can i uninstall Steam client after NoSteam executable has been activated ?

I assume you'll be covered too, as it'll probably be freely available from the Egosoft website.

will there ever be an update bringing some "mini-plots" to the Terran Side in order to obtain the PHQ, HUB and UFJD?

also i havnt seen anything that would suggest the ATF rep issue people had has been rectofied, the fact that many people seem to be able to fix there Terran Rep given time but not the ATF.

Whilst I am happy to see that AP is being patched and updated with new mini plots etc, I just don't think that I can find the time to start from scratch again to gain these plot rewards and to build up the empire that I already had waiting for these plots on my Terran Commander start.

Thanks for patching AP EGOSOFT but I think I will just check out the new ships when it comes out and then call it a day and wait diligently for Rebirth.

You can go modified and have a PHQ with what ever start you use.

As for the Hub... I will have to test that before I can confirm.
atm it is a no-go. Just a sector without gates to link.
When patch 2.0 is released I'll rest and let you know ... probably in a new thread. :)
