I just saw Gratuitous Space Battles on Youtube and I must say that the concept is awesome!
However the ship designs are very lacking! They look more like Space Invaders on steroids or something from Star Control on the AMIGA and the PC from the early 90s. They should have adopted a more awe-inspiring and imposing design, like the immense star ships from Macross, Macross 2, or Gall Force and should have even added the devastating Planet-System destroyers from Gall Force - Destruction and Gall Force - Stardust Wars.
Also the ships need more fire power with larger laser beams and missile barrages like the ones you see here:
