Strategy will be based on these basic actions:
1. simplified colonies control (to avoid micromanagement and allow player to think globally)
2. ship design and production
3. interplanetary resource management
4. reconnaissance, space diversions, fleet battles
5. research, 100+ ship modules, about 30 unique ship hulls, planet technologies
6. diplomacy - the main part in the game
7. other stuff.. :)

Game is based on parties, each party usually lasts a couple of months, so this is not a online permanent world, yet. So, classic 4X game, where you've got one colony and a couple of ships in the start of the game. And gradually, you are growing, meet your neighbours, who may become your friends or foe, and finally - to the domination!

Interesting game. I will keep an eye on it! From you screenshots the 2d GUI seems a little, I dunno... basic/budget. Your 3d models look really nice though. =)

I see what you did there with tachyons*.

*=Theoretical particles which travel faster than light hence would have the ability to create temporal manipulation devices.

God some people just don't want to read more when a developer says "micro transactions or item mall". Both terms don't mean buy in-game items from shop. Its just that for a game to remain or be free the developer incorporates this service shop as a way to generate money to continue running the game. Sometimes(almost always sadly) mmo developers just throw crap that destroy the balance of the game and give power to the buyer.
From what johny5.coder said it will be more closely to how the Guild Wars shop works, name changes, character sex and physical appearance changer, more storage space, cosmetic costumes, unlock all pets for pvp or pve, etc etc.

That doesnt make the game bad and shouldnt make you hate it.

Inventory space is a bitch, though.

Damn how have I not seen this up to now? Looks great and I especially like the fact you don't have shields and instead use counter-measures, much more interesting.

EDIT: Just noticed its regarded as a turn based strategy, it didn't seem like this from the videos, how will this work?

More precisely the game is slow realtime (ship flies from star to star during hours), but to distinguish from RTS (real-time strategies), I usually say that this is "something similar to turn based game", where action is not so high, but strategy, planning and diplomacy instead.
Battles exist in kind of "parallel universe" - when 2 fleets clash on the starmap, new battle initiated. Battle is calculated automatically in real-time, and you can see only the result, without direct control. There should be fleet tactics included, but not yet for now.
