Stardrive is a game that combines RTS and 4X, a sort of Master of Orion mixed with RTS dynamics.
It features a really interesting ship building system, polished graphics, multiplayer, space bears and many other cool things.
Due to his very well balanced mix of elements, i think that can bear fresh air to strategy games.
The game is currently on closed beta but the open beta will come up soon on Steam.

There is a recent video of a live stream of the latest build (0.95b):
