Those who like this may also like Celestia, another similar freeware that covers the entire Universe. With it you can simulate being in a starship, without any weapons, shields, etc. Sorry, no enemies to conquer either. All you can do is get lost in space. Actually not really, a few keystrokes gets you home from whatever planet, star, or galaxy you happen to be exploring at the time.

Thanks to fix the bug with the toolbar.
It's even a little bit better, so still great.

It's now at version 1.4 and they've made another version featuring a black interface- which is more easthetically pleasing...

Quite possibly the coolest freeware I have ever downloaded. If I HAD to change anything I'd make the graphics a bit crisper. Also, I'm having a tough time adjusting the size to fit my 12" screen. But it's a really great program!

Really, REALLY damn cool... I sat there with my little brother and watched all the beautifully animated demos- which ran quite smoothly at max setting on my MDD 1GHz/1GB RAM/OS X.3.2/Radeon9kPro (just wanted to post hardware setup for reference). It was also quite stable and, of course, the price couldn't be better!
