The latest web-browser space empire 'masters of orion' clone: http://www.ogame.org/

What's old: Gather resources, build fleets, conduct research, fight space battles, form alliances, colonize planets, etc.

What's new: The main departure from other BRE style games is that there's no turn or action limit per day, but most actions take a certain amount of time to conduct. So you can set some things in motion, then come back awhile later and start some other stuff. Your resource gathering goes on 24-7. With enough sensor technology you can see when incoming fleets will arrive and prepare for battles, or move all of your stuff before it arrives and avoid a fight altogether. The tech tree is pretty simple and all laid out in one of the report tabs. There's also a pretty large non-english userbase which makes things a little more interesting.

It's not a huge change from the classic formula, but more interesting than most.

My account is Mixolyde, of course, and I'm in universe 28, playing with a couple hockey friends.
