Name changed to Starsector, version up to 0.54.1a, new trailer
To quote Alex about the name-change (to bad, I really liked the name Starfarer):
Wait, what? Yep, you read it right. For Business Reasons, weâ€™re changing the name of the game to Starsector. All I can say about it is this will not have any impact on how things proceed around here â€“ these things happen to projects from time to time, and I hope that everyone will be on board with the change. (If youâ€™re not, my apologies. If you are, thank you for your continued support!) Personally, Iâ€™m looking forward to moving ahead with the new name, and am very excited about the future.

I'm ok with both names and to be honest "starsector" is easier to pronounce for some non-native english speakers 🙂
Nice video, I will update the forum stuff now.
Probably changed the name because there is already a game called 'Starfare' it is a space rts (free) game.
This has got to be one of my favorite games at the moment.
I think it is truly amazing
I wish it had more publicity
I've preordered it almost a year ago. Awesome game. I wish there was a multiplayer component, you could easily turn it into an e-sport 🙂
