So Stardrive has a lot going for it. The ability to design each ship piece by piece and then set their AI. Want a large slow ship with all weapons pointing forward to hammer other large ships? What about making it lighter and pointing all the weapons to the sides and have it strafe through destroying smaller ships? Swap out those weapons for fighter bays and launch swarms of fighter ships. Don't like cannons? Switch out to missiles or lasers. Load it with emp weapons to disable other ships or tractor beams to bring fast ships to a halt and rip them apart with cannon fire.
Each race oozes with their own personality. From samuri space bears to mechanical hive mind of the Opertis.
Build a grand empire of planets. Forge treaties and even a federation with long time allies. The diplomacy system is not ground breaking but quite adequate.
The only down side, and it's a big one, is the slow down you experience late game. No matter how beastly your PC is the game is going to crawl latter on when each race has hundreds of ships and are duking it out with each other.
