The plot has been advertised as one of the main focuses of the game, having brought in various talent from other well-known sci-fi properties. Confirmed cast for the game include:

  • Dina Meyer (Dizzy Flores from Starship Troopers, Commander Donatra from Star Trek: Nemesis)
  • Ron Glass (Derrial Book from Firefly)
  • John Billingsley (Dr. Phlox from Star Trek: Enterprise)
  • Dwight Schultz (Reginald Barclay from Star Trek: TNG, Voyager, and First Contact)
  • Richard Gunn ('Sketchy' from Dark Angel)
  • Aaron Douglas (Galen Tyrol from Battlestar Galactica)

Content

The core of Ancient Space will be its single player campaign. Fleet sizes will supposedly range from 10-20 units (with some of these individual units being squadrons of multiple ships). There will be recruit-able officers you can encounter throughout the campaign, of which 3 can be selected per mission to give the fleet various buffs.

It has been confirmed Ancient Space will be single-player only. There will be no multiplayer.
