Looking for the name of a game

Postby ehmbe » Sat Dec 16, 2006 5:55 am

Hi everyone, new user and first post, hopefully someone can help me

This is what I remember (I'll try to be as specific as I can):

- Strategy space sim
- View out of the cockpit of a spaceship
- Able to dock at a space station to replenish energy and/or supplies
- Tactical map that was divided in quadrants that you could jump to
- Laser fire looked like circles of energy
- Lastly, if enemy in a given quadrant was too powerful then you could try using nukes to clear all enemies but at same time you had to jump to another quadrant to escape the blast.

Anyone? and thank you.
