The layout of the screen is fairly well done. Detailed information of selected planets or races is displayed on the left plane, while the cards you have in your hand are along the bottom of the screen. But the main focus is the game board which is represented by a series of planets and jump-lanes (the paths between planets and moons). At first, the scene seems a bit crowded and busy, but after the tutorials, you get used to the clutter and it just helps to give you an idea of what all is going on in the grand scheme of the campaign. As for the boards graphics, the view is top-down and all of the graphical elements are simple, 2D representations of the heavenly bodies. In general, the overall layout of the game is nice. It displays the information you need to see without making you feel crowded (well except for the game board itself).
Unfortunately, there isn't a lot to the game's audio. There is no background music to speak of and there are only low beeps and boops when you select items and cards on the screen. The sound effects were fine, but I would have preferred some low-key background music to help me focus.
