The 1st player in Quantum isn't random?

Correct. If you read the rules, it says:
The first player is the one with the lowest ship total (resolve any ties by rolling other dice). Starting with the first player and going clockwise<..>

So yes, if you get a tie - it is random, however getting those ties is a low probability on its own. A bit busy to calculate the odds now, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was in single digits percentage wise.

Edit: Yup - 4332/46656 possibilities, so about 9.3 %

I really hope BGA implement the alternate start. It's both logical and fair. The suggestion already got lot of support.
