A recent negative review put the nail on the head. Sword of the Stars had simple planet and economy management so all the emphasis could be put on ship design and combat.

Stellar Sovereigns seems to turn that concept on its head with extremely granular empire management against a ship combat system that's... not simple... but takes the emphasis away from firing arcs and Newtonian physics maneuvers and instead on jiggling power settings off to the side in a manner I find really unsatisfying.

The dev said something about adding features in the near future, so I'm keeping an eye on it, but right now... yeah not worth the effort. Which is a goddamn shame because it's got one of the most beautiful space map screens of any 4X I've played.
