Here are my thoughts about the planets and the star systems in Stellaris. I recently watched some space movies made in the sixties. The space ships and the planets were toys hanging on strings. Just 50 years later, a realistic and lovely representation of a star system is only a part of a game. Every planet may be observed, zoomed and rotated by the player. And as much as this is not so necessary in a strategy game, where things should be shown at a glance, it is fun to loose some time around these planets.
