You didn't read the book did you? The alien attack was just a macGuffin to drive the plot forward. The book's really about Enders experience in "battle school".

I'd say it's closer to "Battle Ship Yamamoto"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Battleship_Yamato

It's a common SiFi trope it's not like I'm claiming to invent something. The original Homeworld is more like a "on the road" story. Traveling, having adventures and then getting someplace. Like "Wizard of Oz" with space ships and RTS play.

The plot of Homeworld is not aliens attack the solar system. The plot of Homeworld is one of yearning. A planet of people, tortured by their harsh conditions, who sacrifice everything they have to escape and even make it back to the place they all can feel is out there. On the way, they find there are reasons for their exile and must not only search but fight back to survive as well.

I dunno, guys. Strike Suit Zero is pretty goddamn... uh... pretty, and it was made by a small indie team. If these guys could take the original premise of Homeworld and make it look as good as SSZ does, I think it'd be a real treat. Especially the Garden levels.

Yeah, I just spent 30 minutes trying to figure out what the song was playing ~45 seconds in. The main Homeworld theme: aka Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei Adagio for strings-Choral Version.

Had totally forgotten about it's use here.
