Good Game for Turn-based Strategy Enthusiasts

Summary: I played the original edition years ago when it first came out and loved it. I recently purchased the ultimate edition at discount because I love turn-based strategy but was too cheap to pay full price for Gal Civ III (few games are worth full price anymore).
Summary: As it's name says, it's a civilization-like game in space. Every race has it's own tech-tree, special abilities etc. Creating your own ships is a great feature. And, for every different mission, there's a one ship, that makes it a deep game.
Summary: Firstly this is NOT an RTS. If it's a game like Homeworld you want then this game is NOT FOR YOU, Comparing it to RTS's with their tool tips, and easy mode game play (dumbed down for those with sub 80 IQ's) are about all over the place. Go play one.
Summary: Pretty damn good space 4x game. Nice amounts of detail, good tech tree and races. Only real problem I have with it is you go in with no context as to the races and technologies and as opposed to say..
