Neptune's Pride (in Off-topic)

An interesting new gem I discovered today after reading a great article on Rock, Paper, Shotgun (CM me if you'd like, it has one swear word so I won't link to it here) and it's one of the few RTS games I'm genuinely interested in trying out.
Think of it as a space-strategy sim with a serious emphasis on diplomacy. It's best if you guys check out the site:

Perhaps we can all join a galaxy together?

Seems kind of sweet. I'd be interested in joining in if a few more CBers wanted to form an alliance. Can you pick where you start or is it random? Because it'd be a lot easier if people you knew started out next to you so you wouldn't clash right away.

It's random, sadly, but otherwise everyone would crowd the corners.

Is this nice enough we invade and take over?

Argh! Under attack, any advice from people who've played before, this is my first real battle / war. Yellow is incomming with about 3 fleets with about 40 ships. The only fleet I have in the area I'd moved out before he made his move, only like 7 ships. attack galaxy map neptune's pride

I'm not sure I can help you out much, Myth, but a neat trick is to leave a planet with only 1 ship... it'll still take out a bunch of their ships with it. Also, make sure to pump science and weapons.
