So I remember this OLD game Star Control.
You explore space,gather resources, colonize inhabitable planets,
meet new alien races, add all that to BC.

Use the ship as a hub to collect women, inprison enemies.
Start at earth space station then work ur way out exploring space.
Alien races have 'territories'. Making allies unlocks girls.
Gather resources to purchase personal,ship & crew upgrades.
Ship on ship battles. Ground attacks,prisoner fight club.
Colonize empty or recently vacated planets to add stripclubs to produce revenue!
(And have strip poker)

You can download Star Control 2 free online to get what I mean if u never tried it.
Just an idea to make BC much more!
