Universe is an Open-Source game which resembles Master Of Orion. It is written in Java. The goal is to have as few arbitrary limits as possible, allowing games as large as you wish. It also supports a concept called "Schemes" which allows programmers to develop distinct rule sets and extensions.

Try reducing the size of your window. There seems to be a bug with the Earth surface map when enlarging the window beyond the default size.
(PS: I'll handly reporting this bug.)
