Set in the distant future, man has evolved beyond flesh and bone and is now one with the machine. Your journey starts as a young Terran pilot taking its first steps into the galaxy, free of allegiances and obligations. You can join or form factions, corporations, bounty hunter gangs or even crime syndicates as you forge your own story in a living evolving galaxy. Whether you fly solo, or with a massive fleet, take a role in government or start a corporation, the galaxy and game-play will respond in kind to your choices and performance.
Each sector has a description as does each mission which is accessible from the Command Console. This is an example of what you might hear when you select the Gunnheim sector 1 of 16 sectors in the game; for note a sector is rather large and contains several sub-sectors with in which you find the events.
