Science: Contact

Just heard Michio Kaku raving on about what a cosmic backwater Earth is and how advanced aliens wouldn't bother visiting us, equating us to little more than ants near a freeway. Is he for real?!?

Void Destroyer: Hardware

Sneak preview of some naval hardware from Void Destroyer, this multi-role vessel is armed to the teeth with a good variety of weapons systems ideal for dealing with fighter squadrons and light capital ships. Like all vehicles in the game, the player can command this warship via tactical interface as part of his fleet, or assume helm control and pilot the ship directly.

The Aegis hull was designed around it's weapons and other critical systems (engines, etc) with armoured plates protecting vulnerable areas - there is an assault variant on the drawing board that will field heavy guns and massdriver arrays against larger vessels as well as armoured platforms and stations.
