Galactus Inc. - Actual Campaign Meeting

So Saturday I'm at a farmer's market in Mass. with 2 of my players & there's no action happening. We begin talking about the game & what's happening in game. They're talking about the fact that basically the entire system that their in is cut off from the planar hyper space highway.
Bob one of my players pipes up that this a job that we need to be doing. We (the party) needs to be clearing out the hyperspace route from debris & such. The others are nodding with this. We need to be Galactus Inc. using the meator factory to do complete construction on planets & put up four lane galactic hyperspace highways!
This is what the players are thinking  
This is what comes to mind

However that being said they made their case pretty damn well.  They sited the fact that they wanted to keep the classes & powers  from Human Space Empires but use Labyrinth Lord, Mutant Future, & Swords & Wizardry for the crunchy  bits .
I've talked with one of my players about what system would support the type of gaming we really want to do with this:
Star Frontiers kept coming up
There are several reasons for it 
  1. Its a dead system & I'm not going to get bothered about it if I run it at the local FLS 
  2. The system supports running space battles without huge amounts of modification 
  3. Players are familiar with it 
  4. It will do what I need it too plus it converts to all of the above systems & its easily usable with Buck Rogers another system I own. 
  5. Believe it or not it supports cosmic games quite well  
Here's what I'm going for with cosmic

Not what you were expecting  I'll let you know where we go from here!
