I love the attention to detail this game has had done to it. Whoever said fan games are crap needs a slap. One thing I need to ask is the characters used in the cut scenes, are they poser models? While flying an early mission one popped up on the video chat and looked very much like the michael 4 character from poser called "LK Simon" and the uniforms used look very very similer to the 'Mos ranger star crew' uniforms with different materials.
I only noticed because I am a 3D animator, video editor & comic maker, and poser is one of my primary used programs next to 3ds max.
