Story of the game

You begin with a single space ship and a few cargo holds and fighters. You can explore the universe to find resources and other items, trade resources between (or rob) various starports, develop planets, claim sectors for tax revenue, steal from other players, etc. Using revenue earned through trading, empire management, and raiding you may improve your ship's military and economic capabilities by purchasing more cargo capacity, weapons, defenses, and munitions... or upgrade to a more advanced ship type.

New Game Session Begins


The concept of this game is that each player chooses one faction at the beginning of the game and is permanently a member of that faction until game's end. The faction with the most points at the end of time, wins!
