Is this at all related to the 90's computer game: http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/221/Ascendancy.html

It was a civ building game set in space and one of my favorite games of all time.

Sadly not! That was the first thing that I asked about the game when I first heard the title as well. I did so love Ascendancy, although I admit that micromanaging the planets became tedious later in the game. Great tech tree though.

Correct, check out this thread for a short overview of the game:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/303369

Assuming the computer game was a 4x game there will be elements in this game that are familiar. Of course a 4x game in board game format is rather different than one on a PC - the management things a PC does well needs to be abstracted in a board game or it would be tedious in the extreme, not to mention fiddly!
