You can vote HERE at our IndieDB site (as well as find out additional information on the game, watch videos, check out screenshots, read articles, etc.). Our project website is stexcalibur.com.

If you're referring to the finished game, you won't find it, because it's still in development. :p That said, you can download our 1.7 model viewer on the IndieDB page, in the "Downloads" section. Note that this is not running in our proprietary Evolved Engine, and only showcases an outdated version of the NanoFX Graphical Renderer. It is not wholly indicative of even the unfinished game.

Voted! And while doing so made myself aware how out-of-the-loop I am with current indie games.

"Set after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis, the player must take command of the U.S.S. Excalibur and lead a Starfleet mission into Romulan space...where loyalties change by the moment, allies and enemies fly the same flag, and no challenge is quite as simple as it seems. In this cauldron of political instability you must command the fleet, master your fear, and win the day. The cost of failure is greater than the Alpha Quadrant can bear."

Or something like that. :p

Not exact details, no. You have the place, the time, and the (very) basic context. When we're ready to reveal more about the game story and characters we will post a news update on our website and IndieDB page.

I must say, this game looks amazing. I downloaded your model loader and the animated Galaxy is spectacular, although it really slows down when I add the other models to the scene. Not the app's fault I'm guessing, as I have a fairly old machine.

Although I am somewhat curious - how could a game that's not ready for use be chosen for the GoTY award? Is there a category for games in progress? Not being a smart-ass in any way, BTW - I'm just genuinely curious.
