Let me begin by saying this is an awesome game and I love it!!! It could do with a bit of updating though:
Research - Can you suppress the "Research is paused. Select a new Technology" message after the research trees have been completely exhausted? It slows down the game at that point to have it appear every single turn.
Faction Politics - Can you have the game return either to the main screen or the turn events screen after a new treaty has been chosen? Returning to the empire summary just adds another button press required to continue and again slows down the game. At the later stages it also really slows down the longer games because the points required are so low you have to select a new treaty every single turn! When you trying to conquer 90+ worlds this is really frustrating, and slow. Perhaps, suppress the "Select new Treaty" message, or make it optional, putting the requirement on the player to pay attention.
Some other minor quibbles, but these are the two main ones. Again...awesome, awesome, game. Thanks for creating it.
