I just picked this up. And i have to say, for an Indie title, there is a high degree of polish. It looks great. And has an FTL style jump to the end of a sector, with a real time and pausable battle section, as well as ground and boarding missions. I have not played a huge amount, just a few hours. But so far im impressed. There is also an actual story going on as well. I am reserving judgment over how deep the strategy is. But theres certainly a large number of options available to you.
