Well, there are several space oriented commercial MMOGs coming out.
Star Wars Galaxies is probably the big one, but the closest are EVE
On-line and Westwood's Earth and Beyond.  I'm working on a graphical
MUD of sorts in my spare time that takes place in space (similar to
Elite/Frontier/Starflight). Unfortunately the design problems are
non-trivial when doing vast expanses that have to be travelled but
are still large (lack of time compression is the biggest problem).
