Saw this posted and it looks pretty awesome even without Occulus Rift support (which is planned)

http://flagshipgame.com/

Real time RTS set from the first person perspective of a fleet admiral.  It has the feel of BSG and Wrath of Khan about it. They are talking about adding the ability to fly the fighter/bomber craft you launch from the ship, but the main draw is watching your commands play out from the bridge.

They've got a nice teaser trailer up showing both the combat and the fleet control interface.

I agree this looks awesome, but I don't know if I agree it looks great without the Rift.  If I'm in VR looking at the tactical table on my ship bridge, it's all kinds of awesome to be able to just lift my head up and see my commands play out outside the windows.  Without the Rift, I feel like it'd be a pain to move my view back and forth.  If it's constant mouselook, then it'll be annoying to have my view shift around as I'm issuing commands, and if it's a toggle, it seems like I'd just as soon keep my view constantly on the tactical table.
