At the moment Stellaris is an empty, bug-ridden, bare-bones shell of a game with almost all content stripped out in preparation for the inevitable deluge of Paradox DLC to turn it into a real game and in the process milk players for all they're worth and then some.
Although Stellaris has some interesting ideas and - arguably - great potential, DW currently leaves it for dead in almost every way imaginable, gameplay, polish, content, fun, replayability...... you name it. That may change (or not) as Stellaris DLC is gradually released over the upcoming years, but currently its no contest.
+1. Lucian has it right. I have both games. DW wins, no contest. Stellaris has a long way to go and may never get there. The designers seem a little hard-headed.
If you want a clean, military oriented game, I prefer Polaris Sector.
