Space Empires III, by Malfador Machinations deserves a look.  4X,
turn-based.  Design individual ships and build a fleet, explore,
colonize, and build and defend your empire.  And it will run on any
machine I've tried it on yet.  (Windows, that is)  SE IV is supposedly
coming out 'any day now', but that's kind of like waiting for the next
turn in an email game.  :)

What's your price?  I'd like to do that thorough read, myself, but just
can't justify the cost for a system I'm not going to use.

Impressive.  :)
