Sword of the Stars 2 big on stars, short on swords

Seriously, I didn't see one sword in the entirety of this teaser. The game is called Sword of the Stars 2 and while I hadn't played the first one, I'm getting the distinct impression that there weren't any swords the first go around.

There are a lot of stars, though. Quite a few ships also, which I guess could be expected from a space-themed empire builder. There are also a bunch of very pretty words which seem to amount to nothing when an inky blackness comes rolling in for a visit and the screaming starts.

Just be aware that you won't see any swords here. Wouldn't want anybody to have their expectations shattered.
