There's not a lot to do during end turn calculations. Perhaps the interface should be adjusted to allow the player to view the preceding turn's reports and other statistics (even if they are now a turn old) during the end turn steps to help pass the time and provide some general pre-planning information?

I also think something like this is essential, if possible.
The problem with having to do something else while the AI is thinking is that, for me, it ruins the immersion and I can quickly become bored with a particular game, so I end up starting a new one and the cycle repeats.
My fix is to run Shadow Empire twice. One copy running specifically to load up the previous turns auto-save to look at while the AI is thinking on the other one.
This probably depends on your system if you can do that, and I doubt it would work with the steam version though - but if it can work for you it might help.

Suggestions should be in the proper forum, I think:

Keeps stuff readable :)

Didn't realize there was a suggestion forum. I don't think I can move this after it has posted.
