Game is currently in alpha and have free weekend over Steam right now, developers promise that if you play this weekend you can keep the game for free.
Looks and feel like the upcoming Dreadnought game - battle between big ships over the simple map with several stations to capture.
I have already played it - very nice, but with much much slower pace than SC. Every ship role have some special ability like short range relocation or repair ally beam. Due to their size, every ship moves and rotates like galvanized Naga, but from time to time you can use Jump Drive to relocate between capturable stations. Note: you need to aim main cannons by yourself, but missiles and drones are AI based.
Game have no matchmaker, so if you have bad luck you can jump into vets battle but its not very likely yet.
