Anyways there aren't many space ship themed 3d games, including ones with small maps. A spacecraft map would consist of asteroids, stars, and planets. Each could be mined or interfaced with with the appropriate tools, and the planets might be kind of abstract. The player mines asteroids and gathers materials from moons/planets to make more fuel, build space stations, missiles, new ships,etc. There could be shooting also. SpaceFlight physics is pretty simple if you assume zero friction, which at "low" speeds is accurate. Steer with the mouse, then thrust to go in the direction, a big part of flying is not hitting the asteroids/etc (braking), so maybe make some reverse thrusters too, or other 'realistic' or other spacecraft controls.
