Like most of you, I have a pretty extensive wish list, and I'm sure some of the games overlap in mechanics and feel .

Here are some that I worry will bring similar attributes to the table, so which ones should I get, and am I wrong about them?

Please let me know, I haven't played any of these, so maybe I got the wrong feeling about them from the reviews and videos I've seen.

I listed this one first because I kickstarted it already. I'm very excited for it.

Theme: Space pickup and delivery, piracy, build up your ship, modular board

Its tough to deny the Firefly theme as I'm a fan, my GF is a fan, and most of my friends are as well. But I fear like Xia is Firefly without the license.

Theme: Space, pick up and delivery, crew management, piracy promised in future expansion.

I've been interested in playing this game for a while, but I fear it will be very similar to Xia but with a pirate theme.

Pick and deliver, piracy, building up your ship, etc.

This one I think is probably furthest from the other 3 games. Its more of a 4x light game than a pick up and deliver.

Theme: space, 4x modular board, ship development, diplomacy.
