The following is what I can remember of a space-strategy game. I do not remember the title, and I figure cool people like you would be able to figure out the title.

As I just mentioned, it is a space strategy game. I can barely remember this game as it was over 10 years ago when I last played.

-If I remember correctly, it has a map of stars not unlike Master Of Orion.
-You build ships and missiles. The game refers to missiles as SSM's.
-You may build ships of varying sizes, I believe. Don't remember if you can customize them aside from research.
-You research technologies. As you gain tech levels, the ships will have different colors. For example, through the game you'll have silver/white ships, and then upgrade them to eventually be gold ships (I remember there being a bunch of tech levels and colors).
-The planet/colony management is rather hazy in my memory. I don't remember any details (and I don't want to get it confused with MOO).
-you may intercept fleets in mid-space before they reach your star system.
-I am not certain how battles work in this game work. I think size of the ships and tech was important, but aside from that I am not sure.

I have looked through abandonia's listing, and googled for around 2 hours. Maybe this game wasn't distributed widely; maybe I'm just not thinking of the right keywords. The listings I have looked through have little mention of this game, but of course it helps to know the title

To be explicit, I am NOT talking about Master of Orion. I would be inclined to say this game was released before MOO, but that is not certain.

I know this isn't much to go on, but I am reasonably certain that if you have played this game, it would ring a bell.

Was it for DOS? If not it might be the original Galactic Civilizations for the OS/2 ? Or perhaps Reach for the Stars (the original, though it is like 20 yo by now). Or perhaps a version of Stars! ? When was the game made?

#2: nope, not ascendancy

#3: I believe I played it on a 486dx; therefore DOS/Win3.1

I finally found it!

Stellar Conquest

This game was a forerunner to MOO; While play slightly slowed by the clunky interface, this game is very fun and features cool gfx.

You guys reminded me of other terms to use in google. thanks guys.

Give the game a shot, I remember it being lots of fun.
