TimeWarp is a fan-made project based on the Star Control Universe and game dynamics. The developers were dissapointed with Star Control III and want to create a "true sequel" to the epic Star Control II.
At the time of writing it has the melee portion of the game implemented, which contains an enormous selection of ships. The classics from all three Star Control games are coupled with a wealth of fan-made vessels. You can even fight in the planet lander!
