You play the strategy at the Galaxy level and play skirmishes at each planet, where the game turns into Real-Time strategy a la Homeworld. Ships can be customized based on what you've researched in the Tech Tree and you can save templates so you can build your own ships off of your favorite configurations.
But, to be honest, I find the game play confusing at times. Things happen for reasons I'm unaware of. I don't understand the combat mechanics. The Economic system doesn't make sense to me. There are items in the tech tree that I don't see what they affect. It is clearly a complex game for Turn-based strategy fans, so I won't say it's a bad game - I'm just not ga-ga over it.
It seems to have quite a fan base. So, if you like strategy games, this is worth a try - especially for the price.
