You are a renegade Stork starship pilot. There are 12 missions to navigate through, most of which are unique from the others. Defend your mothership, protect VIPS, fight bosses, earn credits to buy parts, escape the galaxy. Power-up your ship in the shop to deal with enemies and missions that get progressively harder.
If you are confused about your mission Objective, hitting Pause(p) will bring up to speed on what you need to do next.
