If conquering space is your thing, you might want to check out Stellaris from the same team that brought you the Europa Universalis and Crusader Kings series. Players start on their home world with the discovery of faster-than-light travel.
With this newfound technology, you can explore the procedurally generated galaxy to find new planets to inhabit, more resources and more importantly, new races. It’s up to you whether you keep the peace with your new friends or wage war to increase your slice of the galaxy pie, but you also have to manage your domestic affairs to ensure your empire is prosperous for as long as possible.
