When not playing STO, I have been spending some time with Kerbal Space Program. kerbalspaceprogram.com
Kerbal Space Program (commonly abbreviated as KSP) is a beta-stage sandbox-style space flight simulator game, currently in development for Windows and Mac OS X. Players assume the role of commanding many aspects of the Kerbal space agency including mission planning, rocket design, and space navigation and piloting.
Kerbal is a fictional planet (populated by little green guys) that has started a space program and you design and build your own rockets, develop your program to build space stations, go to the moon and explore the solar system.
