Here's a really odd one. I was playing map #318 ("The Planet (1)") and did a Ctrl-C to save my progress. Quit the game and then a few hours later returned to continue.

I entered into the game and did a Ctrl-V to load the save. Once it loaded up and started, however, all my ships were missing, including in the ships menu on the left side. It was completely empty and I can't build anything. My HQ ship is "ready" and can be built, and all my built energy mines immediately come back online as soon as I click to land my HQ ship. The omnis I had built were still there, though, and still active and working.

This is Centos Linux x86_64. I'm attaching the save file if that would help.

Yeah... you got unlucky and saved on a frame where an emergent was destroyed on some struc.  There was a flaw that a 'dead' emergent was saved and that caused an exception on the load.  The exception caused the game load to fail, which is why you get some much stuff messed up when loading.

I've puta fix in place and will try to get the steam beta version updated later this week.

Glad you were able to easily isolate what caused this.  :)
