There are so many games to buy and I have so little free money. I always intend to get Homeworld but I end up buying something else and having to wait and then I forget about it, and cycle ad nauseum.

Zero-K's flat tech tree (you just choose which factory to start with, and the first is normally a free and instant spawn) is a deliberate design decision. It's also notable that you can reclaim a factory for a 100% refund, so you aren't stuck with a bad investment and can retool to compete if your strategy has been countered. This goes with the inclusive community play-style of big team games that has many players in a repeating auto-balanced match that persists long-term. That's part of the galaxy map meta-game, but you don't have to participate in that or join a faction or be on a relevant side in each battle just to play with them. It took me a while to grasp how this is set up, but I think it's rather smartly done.
True it is a good decision for that particular game, considering all their other design decisions.
