The universe is bigger than we think.

On the remote fringes of the universe, an alien object drifts in quietly from the Black Chasm. The "Bees" break from their centuries-old patterns, but no one pays attention. Instead, The League quarrels over the rights of Artificials, opposed to the potential of a race of benevolent Superminds. The majority however go about their usual business of buying and selling. And while you're busy finding your fortune, events with cosmic proportions unravel around you.

Third Epoch is an epic space-trader of adventure and discovery. You play the role of an enterprising "free-rigger", braving the hazards of space flight transporting goods between supply and demand, and earning a buck in the process. Interesting characters will ask for your help along the way, which inevitably leads to troubles you'll need science to solve.

Travel the stars, trade and earn, build fleets of ships, and take on missions to chart new phenomena and save planets.

Greyskull's comments:

Randomly discovered this (possible) gem. It's a space-trading/exploration game with a reputation system and a slick GUI. I haven't even gone on my first mission yet, so just download yourself no ads, haven't seen any iaps.

If there is IAP, I haven't found any yet
No ads yet either

Edit: Game is awesomely minimalist. A bit hard to tap certain icons on iPhone. Still need to play some more to provide good impressions

Now this will get more attention because of that suspicious title.
