Wage galactic war against both your friends and enemies in a battle to move up the leader board and become the most powerful empire in the galaxy. Starpires is a turn based, massively multiplayer, space themed, empire building/strategy game based off of the wildly popular BBS game from the early 90's, Solar Realms Elite.
The first new Starpires server, Alpha Sector has been launched and is now open for new registrations.

The first new Starpires (Starpires.com) universe since the games original launch is now open to players. Though there has been nearly 100k signups for Starpires, previously all players were added to the same Starpires universe. This meant that you were often trying to move up the rankings against players that may have been playing for over a year.
Alpha Sector the first of many new Starpires servers will give players a fresh start at the game. It also includes some much needed tweaks to game balance and feature enhancements. It's planned to launch additional servers over time, many of which may incorporate very different game mechanics, speeds and overall goals.
All servers will be accessed via a single account on Starpires, and a "command center" is provided allowing players to switch between or create empires on new servers. Within the first 24 hours since Alpha Sector was brought online over 1,300 empires have been created.
