What is the game like, can anyone explain? Strategy, building etc. Im a huge Master of Orion 2 fan, but 3 sucked and I didnt like galactic civilizations. Is it like any of those titles? Im always looking for "new" space games like that, even tho star control 2 isnt new.

Hi there friend! We come in peace and mean you no harm.
Are you sure?
Because your statement is often just a more polite way of saying
`Attention alien vessel: Identify yourself or be destroyed.'
Because I am compassionate, you will not die until you have exhausted your usefulness.
My eternal gratitude is yours, oh devastator of helpless beings. It's times like these that I am forced to feel almost, though not quite, sorry that the Ur-Quan so thoroughly defeated and humiliated your species.
Give us your ship or you will be destroyed!
You build a strong case, Captain.
Here I am, alone and undefended on the surface of a hostile alien world.
Above me you hover in orbit, encrusted with beam guns, missile launchers and other, more dreadful weapons.
So I think to myself: Fwiffo, is it prudent to remain here, as vulnerable as a moltling on a skillet?
`NO', I answer myself, `JOIN THE HUNAM - HE IS KIND AND GOOD!'
But then a wicked voice whispers:
`beware... the hunam is tricking you! If you join him, you will die alone, in the cold of space.'
And for reasons beyond my understanding, Captain, this voice overwhelms the other
and so I must remain here...largely against my will.
Surprise and Terror!
Ah, Mister Nasty is back. I wonder what he wants today? Peace, Happiness, Joy for all?
No, I fear, death and unmitigated destruction is his traditional fare.
Am I correct?
You are mean, cruel and deceitful. I suspect you are an Ilwrath in ape's clothing.
What do you want?
This battle stuff is fun! Let's do some more of it!
Aghk! You are twisted and perverse! You deserve to die.
Are you prepared to die today, Spathi?
We Spathi are always prepared to die, we know just what to do.
It goes something like this
AIEEEE! No! Please be merciful! Not my claw! Please, no! I beg of you! The Pain! NO!
We have heard that you are a race of cowards. Is this true?
Yes, absolutely, and with no qualifications.
This behavior has kept us alive for millenia, and we see no reason to change it now.
Er... Yeah, we do.
So let us fight.
Okay, let's fight. Here we go. We're rarin' to fight.
So let's fight, already!
Oh! Um... we changed our minds. We don't want to. Sorry.
(Pwappy, you idiot! I told you that wouldn't work!)
I find myself moved by your deep commitment to your rituals and ancestral ways. You may live.
That settles it, for now I am certain that you are an honest and friendly being
who is forced entirely through unfortunate circumstance - the unreasonable hostility of the Universe
to travel the galaxy in a ship which, according to my sensors
is best suited for conducting planetary-scale genocide.
