Unfortunately, not yet. We're still implementing some of the mechanics and testing them to make sure things are as smooth as can be at launch. I hope to have more information for you soon.

Need some outside beta testers?  So you can get some feedback from the community before launch?

The big top left drawing on the second pic looks like a ship recycling station.

You read it here first guys and gals! :)

Top right is obv a cylon, and the one below that even more obviously a giant mechanical spermatozoid.

Vastet, please reread the Zarchne's post again. Don't assume you're always right.

You're asking too much.

It is.  My posting skills suck.

Completely redesigned Territories.

It could be the Silenus class recycler I suggested (or something along those lines).

Obviously the Top Left - New Building image posted on page 1 is *not* a Production Link, but in fact a disguised SFC version of Master of Orion 2's planetary defense building the Stellar Converter!
Avoid planets with those. You can all thank me later. :)

Rok Taul is looking to hire a few guns in the upcoming Universe. Will you lend your fleet to the cause?

Rok Taul?  Isn't he extremely old school?  I would rather work for Rex Addesmle...

Is one of the buildings in the picture not new? The post from Matt says 6 buildings but i count 7 i the picture. Production Link, Processor, Extractor, Experimental Lab, Space Dock, Containment, and Construction.

When I first saw them, I wasn't sure if any of them were new or just new names and artwork.  Processor and Extractor remind of mines, Experimental Lab reminds me of Research Lab, Space Dock of Lunar Dock, Containment of Resource Den or Warehouses, and Construction of Capitol and Foundry.  The only one that whose function seems obscure is Production Link (maybe it's like ARCNet... or allows your Moon to use your planet's foundry?  That would be very helpful in a universe of destructible moons.)

However, more likely they had planned to add the seven new buildings and subsequently cut one.

That makes sense. I asked on the Facebook page if they where just new names for the old buildings and they said no. So your theory makes sense.
