About this gameIt is a time of turmoil in the galaxy. Following the disappearance of the Defender of the Universe, the Galactic Presidency has been dissolved and anarchy reigns. With the galaxy divided into three distinct zones, the Galactic Police and the Culthorpe pirate family are engaged in a cold war from across the Lifeless Zone. Life has never been more dangerous for the people of the universe, doubly so for those who make a living flying from planet to planet. And to make matters worse, an invisible conspiracy is threatening life itself.

AGS Panel Review
"Simplistic but solid visuals and a dose of sci-fi nerd humor punctuates this offering by Yahtzee, but it seems clear that he couldn't decide where the game's focus should be -- and the end result is combat that's watered down and simplistic, side quests that are repetitive and a story line that could have used some more focus and effort. Overall it is still a game that most people should find enjoyable."

Otherwise, I really enjoyed the game! Loved the humor and the main characters. But with better graphics, it would have ROCKED!
Very good job on this one!
This game is a hybrid between adventure, RPG and trading game with lots of minigames and sidequests. Very impressive that this is possible with AGS.
And all of the parts work together. I spent ours on trading to improve my ship. A soon as you get bored with that, you can go back on the main quest or a sidequest or...
This beautifully made game has adventure, spaceship combat, planet exploration, many nice minigames and, of course, a lot of humor.
This game reminds me of Star Control 2 - and that's enough to call it "Amazing".
This game has one of the best endings for a game that I have seen for many many years. Not only that, but it has two main endings which makes this even better!
The concept of the redshirts is great! I loved it. The puzzles were good, I didn't get stuck, but some required a bit of thought.
The side quests and sub games were good too. Something you don't see in Adventure games much is a bit of "live action" requiring cursor movement and this was done wonderfully and used in appropriate places.
The characters were interesting and the main plot was intriguing.
A lot of this game reminded me of Elite 2 which isn't a bad thing. I like building up the ship to make it tougher, stronger and better. The only bad point I could make is that the trading got tedious, not because I had to do so much of it, but because I had to talk so much just to make a trade. However this is only a minor gripe.
