    If you think Haegemonia wasn't awesome, you won't find a good space RTS :|

    Are you talking about a space trading game like Freelancer? Or a civ type of game with tradeing?

    AI War: Fleet Command?
    Doesn't really have anything to do with a economic simulation on the other hand...

    EDIT: FreeOrion perhaps?

    Clearly you missed Homeworld then.

    On topic. It's a bit old but have you tried Alpha Centauri? Not quite space, but close if you are after the simcity aspect.

    Edit: What's a Kawk?

    If you like sins then I recommend Homeworld if you haven't played it yet. You most likely have as it is practically core to the space rts genre, but just mentioning it incase.

    Could also try Sword of the Stars, that can be quite fun. Lots of focus on empire growth. Plus you get to customise your own ships.

    Sins of a solar empire is the best I can think of. Star wars empire at war is okay but not much of a simulator.

    Paradox interactive games are IMO the best simulators (Hearts of Iron, Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings, etc.) but they aren't IN SPAACCEEE.
    I'll never forget what I felt that day...
