Homeworld 3 Trailer

A new Gameplay First Look Trailer for Homeworld 3 shows off the upcoming return to the space strategy series. The clip shows off a return of the signature orange-hued outer space of the series, but doesn't really show off as much actual gameplay as the title suggests. The game is in the works at Blackbird Interactive, and it is currently expected by the end of next year on the Epic Games Store and Steam. Here's the brief description of the clip:
Tactical, beautiful, and wholly unique, the GOTY-winning sci-fi RTS returns with Homeworld 3. Assume control of Fleet Command and battle through fleet combat in dazzling, fully 3D space while the award-winning story unfolds on a galactic scale.

This series seems like it should be in my wheel house, I remember I played the original for a short while, but never got far. I don't recall if I was having difficulty, didn't care for it, or just got distracted by something else. Never got back to it. For those of you who are big fans, if I were to give a whirl again should I start with the original or go for 2 or perhaps there are QoL mods I should start with?
If you don't have the originals on GoG (and there may be compatibility issues now anyway), just get the Remastered Homeworld Complete version, either Steam or GoG. It has Homeworld 1 and 2 original versions, as well as the updated/remastered versions. Homeworld Cataclysm got re-released as "Homeworld:Emergence" due to some licensing issue(?) or something, it's at least available on GoG.

I would recommend just playing the remastered versions now, with the Balance mod that prevents the AI from starting a couple missions with literally 300 ships aimed right at your mothership, if you built up a full fleet. The original version had that balancing issue, and basically either you need a mod to fix it, or just recycle all of your ships at the end of the missions to exploit around it. I think even the remastered versions still have that bug/feature. I used the mod (whose name I am blanking on) for the remastered HW1.

I would also recommend playing Homeworld 1 (remastered or not) first, and just getting that storyline completed. It's the better one in my opinion, and then you can decide if you want Cataclysm/Emergence and Homeworld 2 in that order after that. I found the Cataclysm mechanics of the enemies to be more annoying than fun, but a lot of people feel that was the best game in the series, so your mileage may vary.

I have been meaning to go back and play the remastered HW2, but I have not gotten around to it yet.
