First screen shows text that is hardly readable.

It would help if you provided a more detailed report of the bug.

Which screen is the first screen?
Which piece of text is unreadable?

Also if you are implying that you just have a hard time with reading the text on the first screen and that there is no real problem, then I suggest you take this to suggestions with the intent of requesting a more readable text.

The first screen in the game where you're assigning your captain to a room. I put it vaguely because it seems that it could be a consistent issue across the board.I would recommend bordering the text with black. I wanted to add a screenshot, but I'm not sure how to? Can you help?

That sounds like regular Star Command, there are no captains in Galaxies yet.

To post an image you must first upload it to an image hosting site (Imgur, tinypic, etc, etc. . .) and then when writing your post go into the click the [Img] button which will place two [img] in your post, put the url of the image inbetween them.

Example [Img] img url [/img ]

If you're talking about the tutorial, then yea its not aligned properly as of the first beta test*. This is something that will be fixed in a future patch.

You can skip this tutorial by turning the tooltips off when creating a new game.

*unless you're talking about the PC Alpha in which I haven't played it yet

ugh that last screenshot is ugh-ley. Yeah, we probably won't black shadow all text, but with the upgraded engine we can shadow, color, and outline text as we please. We'd rather no one bother using the tutorial, so we'll fix a few things now and wait 'til closer to release to improve the tutorial.

I also couldn't complete the tutorial at one part. You should just disable the keep tool tips on button for now...

That's probably a good idea, though I don't mind fixing it to make sure you can play through it, but ... yeah I think for now will disable it.
