Not my quote, but it sums up the game perfectly. I got it from TotalBiscuit who made me buy it.
His first look was ages ago 14th of Jan , but it was on the fleet battles, which you choose from the menu http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWno9UISZaU
He had a follow up look at it when the campaign came out 18th of Feb, the mount & blade with 2d ships bit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwFqzilbnnk
It is great, I think it would sell well here, but no auto update at the moment, people might complain.
Oh also the game is heavily moddable, and there are mod being worked on for it now including a star trek mod, to change everything to star trek type ships and weapons, and a firefly mod
