Suggestions gathered from Discord chat:

Regarding game play re-playability and longevity:

I would suggest some rpg elements, like Diablo games, where a certain amount of RNG based discovery of items or elements of the game makes it hard to experience everything in one playthrough.
Also a certain amount of personal creation, eg Minecraft style crafting, or personalization of your characters, things like that can expand the playability.

I've been playing StoneHearth and their "well what now" answer is to re-embark on a new adventure, albeit with a select amount of people and items from your town. A new game but with a boost from your previous accomplishments.
Short of a complete restart / end game though, I agree its a tough place to be in. Replayability in this instance would be the focus - as @drunkard said, giving the player something to come back to, so they can do it all again.

Another idea is possibly different starting types? FasterThanLight and StoneHearth achieve replayability from the get-go just by having different ways to start, or dfferent factions / build types.

A "Nice-to-have" -- run into your past failed lives? A chance to encounter one of your ships in the state you were defeated in? I can't imagine it being much more difficult to implement than a random encounter - just take a snapshot of the current ship's state and have that spawn instead of one generated for a derelict / NPC.
