I guess Ancient Space is a reference to something from the RTS by Creative Forge's story. In the absence of playing through the game's single-player campaign to learn what it is a reference to, however, the title Ancient Space - a game ostensibly about spaceships set in the future with quirky ship-borne AI and robots (probably) - is a little like calling a game set during the golden age of piracy Future Oceans.
What does any of that have to do with today's Ancient Space gameplay video? Absolutely nothing.
