Master of Orion is a masterpiece of strategy gaming. The second one was fairly good too, but the first for it’s clean design and minimalist micromanagement was top drawer. Many teams have tried to build a better MOO and all have failed because whenever I play them, I just want to go play MOO instead. This excludes the boardgame ECLIPSE, which is the perfect MOO game that isn’t on a computer.
So it’s 2015 and the bad bad bad taste of Master of Orion 3 is probably washed out of most of our mouths and anuses and there is an announcement by the World of Tanks people that they are doing a new MOO game. All I can say is GOOD LUCK. They are going to need it. How many have tried since 1994 and failed? So many… so many…

With the original on GOG and on iOS(Starbase Orion), why even bother? Theres even a Star Trek verion of it(Birth of the Federation) still supported by fan community.
I don’t disagree, they MAY be able to pull it off though. Birth of the Federation was pretty good, but man it was buggy as shit in the late game.
