Making space games is a moot point these days because the holy triumvirate of space games already exists: EVE Online, Sins of a Solar Empire, and Imperium Galactica.
Those are not a substitute for this game. Two of those are strategy games, and eve online doesn't rely on your own dexterity, but is just indirectly controlling it. This is a Space sim, you actually fly your own ship. Plus it will also have a free online mode.
Oh wow a fucking cutscene. I'm excited now.
That is rendered in the actual gameplay engine.
