Can anyone recommend a good space type game for me?

I am a fan of Star Trek and looking for a game with large space ships in it and good space ship combat, are there any games that involve these, either strategy or action?

My device is an ipad 4th gen.

Also take a look at Eclipse for a solid adaptation of the hugely-respected 4X boardgame.
