Super ships isn't the most accurate of titles, but it works. I am a veteran of all of the escape velocity games. After reaching the end of the game, I always wanted something to demonstrate that success, and then new challenges to pit myself against. This is that desire made manifest.
This is definitely more developed. A lot of stuff is added to the game. Races added: UE, Emalgha (we left it as testing values, not original), Igazra, Azdara, Zidagar
