Also check out FGG's new Rants section which has lots of good info on what they are up to and were products are (Armada is at the printers).  Back on 4/17 they posted this info on Armada:

"Throughout the last three months, we have been playtesting and developing Twilight Imperium: Armada, our 2nd generation follow-up to the game that we designed for Red Alert and licensed to Last Unicorn Games (a company that was later purchased by
Wizards of the Coast
). At the time that we has finished our stage of the development, this was my favorite of the three disk-games that we had designed to this date. As Red Alert was published, we noted a few things that we certainly wished could be done differently, and when WOTC discontinued Red Alert, we decided to re-publish the game in our own epic sci-fi setting (that of our best-selling Twilight  Imperium board game). We have playtested the new version extensively and added new feautures to the system such as "Squadrons" (fighters and bombers) and a whole new initiative system. The crew and technology mix will also be different from RA."

Armada
page (here) and it states that it will be released at the end of May.
