    Anyone else pick this up? I was on the fence until I read some reviews. I got it 3 days ago, and I've barely been able to pull myself away to type this up :lol 

    It's fantastic! I'm very impressed with what Iron Clad/Stardock have done.

    I'm also looking forward to the release of the development/mod tools. Folks are already planning BSG/Star Wars/Star Trek mods.

    I can see this game having some nice longevity.

    I've been tempted to grab it, just too busy lately to get into the kinda game I know I can easily spend 5 hours glued to the computer without realizing it.

    Picked it up the day after it came out. I've only had a chance to play the tutorials, one aborted game, and two full games, but I'm already hooked. The game is just one hell of a lot of fun, and manages to make time just disappear.

    I need to try out some new races and tactics though, since all I've played so far is the TEC, and every time I just end up building 3-4 Novalith cannons to bomb my enemies into nuclear ash. Actually won my second game with only one capital ship. Granted, the sucker was level 8 by the time I won :D

    I've know about this game and I've heard many postive things. Is it a game that's similar to Masters of Orion?
