The game represents a simple interstellar economy that supports the discovery and conquest of new worlds. The player's role is to scout new planets and establish landing sites for the colonization ships that follow. Once a landing site is established, freighters will be dispatched to begin construction of a base and colony complex.
Beware though -- you are not alone. There are others with the same designs on this sector of space. Be prepared to fight for every stinking dirt ball.
You can play this game alone or on the network between up to four players. An Internet server helps players locate other players.
