Starpoint Gemini Warlords: Titans Return teaser shows the massive ships arriving next month

Much has happened to Starpoint Gemini Warlords since we first (and last) looked at it in March 2016, just ahead of its launch into Early Access. It went into full release in May, for one thing, and seems to have been pretty well received overall by both fans and critics.
