Not sure it has enough power to support an emulator & game.
That said, try Oolite - a freeware Mac Os / Windows / Linux port of Elite. You'd need to compile it from source though.

Was watching the youtube about it, he mentioned cost as a barrier to learning computer programming, yet left out demand, as lots of programming jobs are out sourced to foreign places in big companies in the UK.

Not saying it wouldn't be cool though!
edit: first post in 11 months. Pi is awesome enough to have brought me back, despite the issues that made me leave :)

Flash is now unnecessary, and it's just a matter of time before the HTML 5 toolchains catch up fully.

Cost difference is negligible, one is much neater than the other and doesn't require messing around.
Am I still going to buy a Pi? Yes, probably two, but getting one just for NAS purposes seems silly to me unless you want it to do something a bit different.
