Nah! No challenge really - they're not very good at running away!

Same here - no point, unless there's somebody nearby you don't like.

I like star jellies - they make the Ooniverse more interesting and there's always that tiny chance they will be useful if you get swarmed or something - and since they are bigger easier targets than asteroids I just can't see any fun or interest in shooting them without a good reason.

The key word was 'ball' of a time. I had no idea what would happen till after. Was only just fast enough on the uptake.
