Derek Smart's BattleCruiser Millennium has been officially released as freeware. This game had it all, from fleet actions, to fighter combat, ground assaults and strategic modes. Unfortunately it was somewhat universally hailed as incredibly mediocre. It was somewhat clunky and difficult to learn how to play. The game had numerous patches to fix a variety of bugs. The official 3000AD website now lists a variety of mirrors from which you can download the full 230 meg game. Last year it looked like Smart wanted the Freespace license, but it appears that he's now working on an entirely new BattleCruiser game. Woohoo.
