Look to Starmade, Scrumbleship, Corneroids, etc. for games similar to BR.

Stardrive is similar but not voxel and more strategy. http://store.steampowered.com/app/220660?snr=1_41_4__42
If your going to use military force you ought to use overwhelming military force. All war is immoral and if you let that bother you your not a good soldier.

Not really another game but rather an interesting looking planetary scale procedural engine: http://www.outerra.com/forum/index.php?topic=247.0

Found it while looking for the city destroyers from Independence Day.

HeatSignature might be on the edge of being "Like BR", but it is interesting nonetheless.

This one seems promising:

Interstellar Rift has a very interesting interior ship designer. Though it lacks custom room sizes (currently makes a room 4x4x4m) for now. The ship editor is also nice in that you can manage and organize sections of your ship as you build. Could still use a spread tool, copy paste and mirror tools.

Has a "working" power management system and fuel management and an interesting mining mechanic.

Here's another one.

Not really blockade runner like in terms of ship building, but more in the crew management, and the living starships aspect:

Galactic Princess is currently in development and seems quite fun. Though ship building is limited to just one dimension, the RTS style you manage your crew and systems of your ship make up for it. And the general style and theme is also a plus.

So it is. Gonna have a go, see what this hiatus brings.

Edit: Quick glance at the forums:

- Haxus is a lot more active now in terms of community feedback
- SoH is now a monthly sub, $10 for 30 Days, $20 for 60, $30 for 90, $55 for 180 and $100 for 365

I am not going to sub, so I can't tell you if the gameplay has improved at all.
