Shareware game of old: ares

Anybody play this game before? http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/ares/

I thought the game was so awsome, I registered it...Before Ambrosia owned it. I registered when it was "changling" software I think it was called, shortly after ambrosia took over and my registration meant shit. I was really ripped off. But that doesn't change the fact that the game was really cool, anybody play a game similar to it?

It's kinda like a real-time action/strategy game. Basically you fly around in a ship, and you take over planets, and tell them to build whatever, as you try to take out your enemies' planets. Imagine an RTS game with limited building capabilities, and a very basic economy, but with the option of you the player able to pilot any of the spaceships you built, and dog fight in them yourself, you could change which ship you were pioleting whenever you wanted, kinda like those sports videogames where the pass button also works as a "change character" button when you don't have the ball/puck/whatever.
