Digital Anvil is uncredited, they handled the initial development until the project was moved to Fever Pitch but apparently Digital Anvil's work hadn't been scrapped in the process.

Many have said Frontier Wars is Starcraft with fleets (a bit like how Battlefleet Gothic is to WH40k), so the similarities may be a bit too glaring for those who see it this way.

Species:
* Terrans — all-rounded with perhaps the most powerful vessels
* Mantis — locust-like species with biological ships and orbital structures, mostly uses carrier vessels with massive numbers of fighter craft.
* Celareons — the high-tech energy-based species living inside machines that allow them to interact with the physical world, uses sweeping energy based weapons.
