Description from the website:
Neptune's Pride is a multiplayer game of Strategy, Intrigue and Galactic Conquest!
The game is real-time and played over several weeks. You can log in at any time of the day to check the progress of your fleets, view the results of battles and issue new orders.
It's the game you know and love with a twist. A 4x Strategy game with its complexity stripped away to reveal an exciting game of diplomacy and strategic command.

It'd be cool if we could get some kind of EC game going. It's not going to eat up much time as you only need to check in a couple of times a day: kind of like fantasy football, but with spaceships and lasers. There are different sized maps for different numbers of players, so it'd work with as few as three people. Just post here if you're up for it, then I or whoever can set up a game based on the amount of interest.
Keep me entertained while I'm stuck at home, guys.
